Scholemoor Beacon was established in 2006, when the Tenants and Residents group and the Youth group merged to form Scholemoor Beacon which was based in the Youth Centre on Dracup Avenue. There has been a close relationship with Bradford Council’s Youth Service ever since. Scholemoor Beacon worked to transform the derelict site and over a number of phases have developed in partnership with Bradford Council and a variety of funders a play area, Multi Use Games Area, trim trail and junior grass pitch. This provision has been a real asset and is used by the local community on a regular basis. Use of the site was also supported by funding from Sports England, which mean Scholemoor Beacon could employ a Community Sports and Activities Worker to deliver and coordinate a range of sports and activities on site.
In 2016, Scholemoor Beacon successfully acquired the Community Centre through a Community Asset Transfer process from Bradford Council and is now responsible for running the centre and working towards improving and developing the centre alongside local people.
