What we do
Meaningful intervention is fundamental to our work. We’re are not just interested in ticking outcome boxes for young people. We look to make a real, tangible difference to the lives of young people growing up in this severely deprived, inner-city area of London.
Over the last five years our Youth Services has transformed the area that was rife with gang related crime to one where young people are attending structured activities on a weekly basis and building the confidence to better their lives. Every week, all year round, we provide for local young people drop-in Youth Club sessions and specialist Youth Service activities. Sessions are delivered all in one safe, contained site at our purpose built Youth Club and state of the art sports facility,
QCCA works in partnership, and receives substantial funding from GOAL (Gospel Oak Action Link) to provide these.
All year round we run sessions throughout the week. During the school holidays we organise trips and extra sessions. All different ages take part in sporting tournaments and our partners such as the Camden Roundhouse deliver sessions for our youth.
Our sessions are drop-ins, so there is always something to do, activities to take part in and new skills to learn.
Senior Youth Club: ages 13 to 19, Monday and Friday 6.30 to 9.00pm
Junior Youth Club: ages 8 to 13, Wednesday 5.00 to 8.30pm
Inbetweeners Youth Club: ages 10 to 14, Thursdays 6.30 to 8.30pm
Example activities: cooking, free-running, cricket, multi-sports, girls group, information advice & guidance, music studio, gym sessions, school holiday and half-term trips, sports tournemants.
To join any of our sessions, come down to The Dome or ring 020 7419 2700 for further details.
