Situation

Lack of community space in Acton/Chiswick/Hounslow. Youth club facilities have halved in number over the past few years we want to give the young people in our area somewhere safe to go and something good to do to keep them out of trouble on the streets of London. Ten years ago my son was shot in the face by a gang of youths and we want to support young people from getting into this sort of trouble. Help us to do this by supporting our centre.

Solution

Sports, recreation and counselling support for young people in our area, seven days a week between the hours of 4-10pm. For the hours from 8am to 3pm the local community will be able to use the centre. We will also house a nursery as part of the centre for local people.

  • "A Youth & Community Centre is just what this community needs to give our young people somewhere safe to go to keep them occupied"

  • "If there had been somewhere like the youth & community centre around here when I was 13 I doubt what happened to me would have happened. Too late for me, but not to save others going through what I went through"
