Welcome to
Swinton Lock

Swinton Lock Activity Centre is a trusted safe space, committed to delivering emotional, social and wellbeing services, which are community led.

We are based adjacent to the South Yorkshire Navigational Canal and own two narrow boats, one of which is fully accessible. Both boats are used to offer boat-handling courses, volunteering opportunities and pleasure trips to both children and adults.

What we Do

Swinton Lock Activity Centre provides an extensive range of activities and support for both young and old.

Our location, facilities and ample parking also make Swinton Lock an ideal location for meetings, conferences and parties.
