The Centre opened in 2000 having received £356,750 from SRB round 2 to develop the 100 year old, Grade II listed Methodist Church Buildings.

The Claremont First Step Community Centre also received funding of £262,884 from The Tudor Trust and The Community Fund to develop the work of the project.

The Centre lies in the heart of Blackpool’s Claremont Ward

The Claremont Ward is an area of tremendous disadvantage, having been placed in position 200 out of the 8414 English Wards on the 2000 DTLR Deprivation Index.  The Claremont area has high unemployment, large concentrations of low-income families, single parent households, multi-occupancy dwellings, poor health and education attainment, and elderly residents.

It is also a varied community which includes holiday accommodation and a large transient population.
