It can be tough growing up in Westminster. St Andrew's Club wants to expand our current provision for this new project - enabling more members to gain experiences and opportunities for only 50p a night. Building motivation, confidence and resilience - crucial life skills.

Situation

Young people in inner-city estates searching for self-respect may become involved in unsafe anti-social behaviour. St Andrew's is the only local community youth club that is not within a housing estate, offering a 'neutral' space. Our consistent annual voluntary membership of c. 700 members is evidence of the great local need, particularly as other local youth centres such as Ebury, Tachbrook or Churchill Gardens reduce their provision or even close down.
