Stanley SNAP

We are delighted to announce we have team up with Children in Need & Lancashire County Council to run a weekly special educational needs youth club at New Era in Accrington. The youth club  will run every Thursday 6:45pm-8:30pm and is open to young people aged 11-17 and its completely FREE to attend!

The project provides opportunities for young people to improve their overall physical and mental health & well being, by taking part in a range of new activities. Children and young people attending the project will have more opportunities to mix with their peers, to have fun and take part in a wide range of activities of their choosing which help them bond and make friends.

Head of Sport at Stanley Trust Lee Walsh explains ‘we have joined forces with Lancashire County Council to re-launch this session and we are confident it will be a huge success, the youth club offers a safe environment for young people to join in fun activities and socialise with other young people, its also a great opportunity for the families to meet up and relax’.

Martin Fearon, Chief Executive Officer at Accrington Stanley Community Trust said; “We could not reach out to as many disabled young people in Hyndburn without the support of BBC Children in Need. This grant will enable us to make a positive impact on the lives of so many young people, and give them the support they need.”

whether you have been before or not we encourage you to come and give the youth club a try. For more info please contact the office 01254 304071. You are able to turn up on the night, no booking needed.

The youth club is completely free and held every Thursday evening 6:45pm- 8:30pm at New Era, BB5 2EJ
