St Andrew’s is a community based youth club which provides activities that are enabling, educational, fun and participative for young people from the ages of 5 to adulthood. The Club offers a safe, welcoming and active environment and aims to do right by our members to help them help themselves and others.
It can be tough for a young person growing up in South Westminster. Around 700 members depend on us each year in our ‘neutral’ environment, that isn’t part of any one housing estate. We give local young people, many of them on tight family budgets, the chance to thrive and give back to society through our varied youth programmes - which help them develop educationally, socially and personally through a wide range of sport, art, practical skills, trips out and training.
Spread over a three storey, purpose built premises, we offer something for everyone – from archery to music production, cookery to chess, screen printing to photography, karate to arts and crafts; in addition we field four football teams every weekend. As well as providing in-house training we work with external partners to extend our offering to members – examples include projects with the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, Tate Britain, the Supreme Court and the English National Opera.
St Andrew's Club is a local charity, funded by voluntary donations, and the world’s oldest youth club, which has been making a priceless contribution to the local community for over 150 years.
