  • Bury
  • Bolton

Feedback

"The students benefited they have a fun day they developed team building skills, working together, appropriate conversations. It also enabled them to physically challenge themselves" Manchester Secondary Pupil Referral Unit

"WAC has always been an excellent place to take our trans young people. There are very few non-LGBT places we take young people where the venue doesn't need additional support in inclusion, but WAC has never had an issue. Fantastic youth workers." The Proud Trust

"The session was just what the group needed, they all joined in and enjoyed. Here are a few of the things they said, "This is the best day of my life", "Can we come again", "Sir, i'm loving doing this" Standish Community High School
