About the centre 

Ridgewood Community High School is affiliated to CTC and supported by Cycling Projects, Wheels for All initiative.

The school provides education for children with special needs and disabilities and they are excited about a scheme launched recently by Danny Ings, the Burnley Superstar. He has part funded a project, to deliver football coaching for disabled youngsters to this region.

Located on the outskirts of the city centre to the north-east, places of interest nearby are the Acton for Autism organisation and the Mill Textile Museum.
