8-13? Want to play?

Free and safe child centred play provision across the borough offering activities within local communities for children and young people aged 8-13 years old. There are opportunities after school and during holidays where children and young people can take part in lots of different fun activities including: arts and crafts; sport; drama; trips, and accredited activities.

This gives the children and young people attending the opportunity to build skills and develop their confidence in a welcoming environment.  All structured activities are led and chosen by young people for young people and aim to develop their Social, Physical, Intellectual, Creative and Emotional (SPICE) skills.

To ensure the highest quality service, we are signed up to the Ofsted or Voluntary Register for all of our play schemes. All staff are DBS checked (previously know as CRB).

Places on sessions are issued on a first come - first served basis.

13-19? Bored? Want something to do? Nowhere to go?

Harwood Young People's Centre offers a range of activities designed and delivered by you! Whether it be drama, sports, arts or music, our staff are on hand to help facilitate every session to meet your needs.

Youth Workers are on hand to offer confidential information or advice on relationships, bullying, health issues, the law and anything else which may affect you. Bolton's Council works closely with various partners helping young people to grow and develop to become valued members of their communities.

We work from a variety of settings, whether we are working from a centre, on the streets or in your local community, we offer a safe and welcoming environment.

Get involved, make a difference and check it out!
