My Life in Bolton

Through the SEND area of My Life in Bolton - an online service directory, Bolton Council works with partners and the community to maintain details about community organisations that provide a range of support, leisure activities and sport that are tailored to, or are specifically provided for anyone with additional needs.

These currently range from football and swimming clubs, to martial arts and dance classes - as well as more general community support services and clubs for children and young people.

Below are some of the organisations included on the directory:
