The East End Boys group was officially launched at the One Voice Annual Dinner 2019.

The boys group is made up of 11 to 15 year olds from Blackburn. We aim to create the next generation of young gentlemen into the community. There is a deliberate focus on respect, a high standard of manners and outstanding behaviour. The other key emphasis is to move the boys away from their comfort zones and challenge them through innovative engagement methods.

The EEBS will develop key skills including confidence, public speaking and leadership. The group also work on projects such as health inequalities, cohesion and understanding their local environment.
