Make a hobby into a passion

Have a hobby or sporting idea you've always wanted to try? Part of a recreational group that is looking to grow?


Then we have the opportunity for you!
 We have an exciting new opening to set up or scale up fun activities in  seven areas across Antrim and Newtownabbey. This is your chance to kick start that hobby you've always wanted to be part of or build on an activity that you're already doing. The choices are endless! It could be a walking group, craft circle, ladies football, dog walking group, or kayaking club, so if you have an idea this is the perfect time to try it!

Over the course of this FREE programme there will be trainers and mentors to help you get started. You will be supported to create an action plan to run the activity and gain a qualification in Active Leadership. There is the opportunity to access £2,500 to support your group setting up your first event and some materials or equipment needed for the activity. 

No experience is required! We are currently signing up enthusiastic groups of people aged 18+ to commit to a programme from March/April to September 2019. 

For more information on the programme and to register interest, contact Helen Di Duca: or 028 9024 4063.

The project is being delivered by WheelWorks in partnership with Antrim and Newtownabbey Council. This is part of a £3.2 million project supported by the European Union's PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).
