Swinton Lock Activity Centre

Swinton Lock is a community based charity developed in 2004 to meet the education and social needs of the communities in Rotherham, Doncaster, Barnsley and Dearne Valley, focusing on those who through disability, social and economic disadvantage face barriers to accessing these opportunities elsewhere.

The primary focus is a re-engagement programme for young people of secondary school age who are struggling to achieve or have been excluded from mainstream education for a variety of reasons. A wide ranging and diverse programme of activities have been devised offering alternative education programmes. Keep scrolling to find out more!
