About Swanage Skatepark Community Project

​SSCP was founded in 2023 to give our community a say in the evolution and improvement of Swanage Skatepark, raise funds for new equipment and build an inclusive and welcoming culture around the skatepark by hosting events that will inspire and attract more users. 


SSCP will continue the decades of fundraising and community engagement carried out by Lorna Haines. Thanks to Lorna’s hard work Swanage Skatepark has proven valuable to many generations of young people; supporting mental and physical health as well as social and personal development. We are grateful that Lorna is chairperson of SSCP.
