Get Active in Westhoughton 

Young people 

Get Active Westhoughton is an initiative funded by Westhoughton Town Council in partnership with Bolton Councils’ 5-19 service and Sport, Health and Inclusion to offer diversionary activities for the young people of Westhoughton and support the existing voluntary groups/ clubs in the area.

The project includes two main elements:

  • Street based youth work with young people aged 13-19 years aiming to address issues such as antisocial behaviour, alcohol consumption and other risky behaviours and;
  • Targeted sports provision to encourage participation in physical activity and promote membership of the various sports clubs in Westhoughton.

Many of the activities are available all year round with extra provision on offer during the school holiday periods.

For more information on specific times please contact Becky Boydell 01942 634646 / 07824541238 or Ian Davies 01204 334932 / 07747101706
