Swarthmore seeks to inspire lives through friendly learning within a commitment to equality of opportunity.

Swarthmore is a centre for lifelong learning, community projects and family learning sessions as well as the courses and activities advertised in our brochure. Our main aim is to encourage people who want to learn but might not feel comfortable in more formal educational institutions.

We work on a friendly, human scale, offering a confidential counselling service, on-site childcare and learning support. Many volunteers currently support the Centre’s work and we welcome their contributions of time and energy.
