About

Bolton Smart Enterprise is a not for profit organisation that offers educational and social  opportunities for young people in Bolton (aged 13 -19 yrs) and young adults (aged 20+) with disabilities.  We offer bespoke accessible education and social learning programmes within a safe and secure environment. The programmes we offer are designed for those who are NEET,  who have disengaged (or are at risk of disengaging) from education, training or employment and those who are isolated to build their confidence, self-esteem, motivation and increase their life skills to enable them to become more resilient and move positively into training, education, employment and volunteering opportunities. We accept Direct Payments for those individuals with an EHCP in place on a referral basis only.

Activities on offer rely on funding and our fundraising efforts therefore current programmes are subject to current secured funding. Programmes we deliver include;  arts, craft and design, drama, basic/life skills, social activities, creative enterprise challenges, music and dance, volunteer training, heritage projects, health and wellbeing and employability skills programmes. Please enquire for current programmes on offer.
