West Bowling Local History Archives
West Bowling Youth Initiative

The West Bowling Youth Initiative (WBYI) is a small charity and local voluntary sector organisation based in a multi-cultural area of Bradford. It was established in 1991 by local people to work with predominately young British Pakistani Muslim men, especially those who were at risk of offending. The initial project was supported by The Prince’s Trust and subsequently gained funding and backing from other charities, EU and government funding and ongoing support from the local authority.

Over the last 25 years, WBYI has broadened its remit and has developed a strong reputation for successfully engaging hard to reach young people, including those excluded or struggling at school, ex-offenders and those in the criminal justice system and others facing a difficult transition to adulthood. WBYI currently works with a core age range of 13 to 25 year olds including, employment support programmes; alternative curriculum programmes for schools and crime prevention work through personal and social development projects. In addition, school holiday programmes and sports activities cater for local 7 to 13 year olds and increasingly there is a demand for volunteering and leisure activity.

WBYI has evolved and is highly respected part of the community and increasingly works in partnership with other organisations – voluntary sector projects, sports clubs, employers and the local authority. It is also now engaging young people from other communities, including traditional white working class neighbourhoods (Holmewood and Bierley) and new migrant communities (Manchester Road and Little Horton) closer to the city centre. This is an indication of how WBYI has matured and is ideally placed to facilitate an expansion of its methodology to address new challenges with new communities.

West End Centre

The West End Centre is a purpose built modern community centre based within St Oswald’s Church.

The Centre is financially independent and distinct from it. The Centre serves all sections of the local community and welcomes people of different faiths, cultures and ability levels.

​It is a Registered Charity and Company Ltd by Guarantee. We are based in Little Horton, Bradford. The Centre opened in May 2005.

It has developed provision in line with the needs and wants of the local community.

We have a range of groups and activities delivered in the heart of the community.

We develop the capacity and skills of the members of the socially and economically disadvantaged local community of Little Horton and the City of Bradford in such a way that they are better able to identify, and help meet their needs and participate more fully in society.

We promote social 'inclusion' by preventing people from becoming socially excluded, relieving the needs of those people who are socially excluded and helping them to integrate into society. This benefits the community, without distinction of sex, sexual orientation, race or of political, religious opinions.
