Belfast Activity Centre
Registered charity XN82053
BAC engages young people through a range of dynamic programmes:
Access-Ability delivers an equality of opportunity for young people by demonstrating that physical and learning disabilities should not be perceived as barriers to participation through a broad range of outdoor experiential learning activities. The Project is sponsored by the Big Lottery, Reaching Communities Fund until 2014.
The Greater Shankill Youth Build Initiative is a pioneering community development project anchored by Belfast Activity Centre (BAC) and operates throughout the Greater Shankill through strong community partnerships.
Thanks to funding from the Big Lottery's Change UR Future programme, BAC has developed an exciting new project called Inside Out. Aimed at some of Belfast's most deserving young people that come from really challenging environments or from areas where opportunites are not readily available to them; the project aims to empower them to develop a journey lasting from 1 to 5 years that helps them look at their lives and make positive choices that benefit their futures.
Working with young people from North and West Belfast who undertake a caring role within the family, this programme provides a broad range of outdoor activities and the opportunity to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award.
To support its Charitable work BAC organises a number of fundraising events. Choose an event for a fun experience with family or friends or enter a team to help fundraise for your preferred charity or good cause.
The Duke of Edinburgh Open Award is a volunteer led initiative supported by BAC for over 20 years. The Open Award programme offers open access to young people who do not have, or may find difficulty accessing the Duke of Edinburgh Award Programme through other providers. The BAC Open Award offers programmes for Bronze, silver and gold levels and includes additional BAC equipment and staff support for expeditions locally and internationally.
