We have over 2,000 members and all come from inner-city areas in the bottom 10% of the most deprived communities in the country.
4% live in child poverty
50% have free school meals
60% come from single parent households
70% come from ethnic minority backgrounds
In light of cuts to local authority youth services, we need support and funding more than ever before to ensure we continue to support the most vulnerable sectors of our community. Investing in young people, with time or money, is an investment in the future.
We believe in working in partnership with other organisations committed to the same values as us, pooling our resources, ideas and enthusiasm. Together we can continue with our commitment to improving youth provision in the local area.
We would not have been able to achieve the success that we have without the support of our funders and partners, ranging from local authorities to private companies and individuals, and we are deeply grateful for their ongoing help and commitment to the Harrow Club.

London Youth Quality Mark
The London Youth Quality Mark is the only quality assurance scheme for youth clubs accredited by City and Guilds and, uniquely, it involves young people in assessment. Thanks to an award scheme from the City Bridge Trust, clubs that achieve the London Youth Quality Mark receive additional benefits – making it easier for clubs to invest in quality. We currently hold the Bronze Level following reaccreditation in July 2019 and hope to achieve Gold status by the start of 2020/21.
