Lancashire Youth Challenge enables young people to investigate and define their place in society via participation in high-quality personal wellbeing projects, creative and cultural education activities, community impact projects, bespoke 1-1 personal development sessions, life skills workshops and our annual outdoor challenge & expedition programme.

As a targeted youth provision, young people are referred to the programme via local health, education and youth & community partners.

Our annual programme is delivered in partnership with industry experts and provides a voice to young people who feel disenfranchised and underrepresented; enabling them to make positive changes in their own lives and the wider community.
