The Bulldogs

The Bulldogs is a Partnership between Bulldogs Boxing & Community Activities (Registered Charity Number 1156591) and Port Talbot Amateur Boxing Club.

The Charity delivers our community focused activities whilst the Boxing Club delivers the sport.

The Bulldogs is a Community Development Centre based around a boxing club and has been formed to give  people from Port Talbot and its surrounding areas a fighting chance in life by supporting them in making positive life choices and changes. We have harnessed the powerful tools of Boxing, alongside supporting personal development through The Bulldogs 5 Pillar Personal Development Programme. 


The 5 Pillar Programme

The ‘Bulldogs 5 Pillar Programme’ is open to all members.

It is a “mix and match personal development programme” designed to suit individuals. Each of the Pillars can be accessed at any time, using as much or as little support as they want.
