History of the Centre
Ormside Mill Residential Centre is a registered charity (no. 1078029) whose primary purpose is to provide affordable residential experiences for young people.
The Mill, which had previously been used as a private family home, was bought in 1999. The buildings and facilities have gradually developed over the years thanks to the hard work of the staff and a group of committed volunteers, who regularly give their time at the centre.
Most of the groups that stay at the centre are voluntary youth clubs working in disadvantaged communities in the north of England. However we welcome a whole range of groups from schools and colleges, families and corporate groups during the year.
The centre is owned in partnership by the Lancashire Association of Boys and Girls Clubs and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Manchester.
