Also run by the Harrow Club, the Sands End Youth Club is a community-based youth club located near Fulham Broadway. The main aims of the club are to work with local disadvantaged and socially excluded young people to help improve their self-confidence and increase their opportunities.
Since we opened in 2012 we’ve been working in partnership with the Adventure Playground. We have also recently built strong partnerships with London Sports Trust who provide cooking sessions and employment support for the young people. We are also working closely with Chelsea in the Community who run their community football sessions from the club on a Wednesday.
We connect with young people through a variety of methods and settings, that enable them to maximise their life chances and personal development goals. We do this by assessing young people’s needs through surveys, user forums and outreach programmes, and then we deliver projects and programmes to meet these needs. Our youth committee is also essential to help us develop our programme.
