What we do
QCCA makes a real difference to the lives of young people growing up in Gospel Oak. We help prevent gang-related crime, truanting and anti-social behaviour in this severely deprived, inner city area. Our services promote commitment with structured activities on a weekly basis; identity through the unity of a group; and the confidence of young people to better their own lives thanks to the guidance of our dedicated youth workers.
We’re not just interested in ticking outcome boxes for young people; meaningful intervention is fundamental to our work. 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 with GOAL (Gospel Oak Action Link) to provide 5 nights of actives to the young people at the Dome.
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
