“If serving young people were only about providing facilities, our Club would be little more than a sports centre. But St Andrew’s operates at the heart of its community, it has tradition; it has soul. It’s where young people undertake a host of activities in an environment of moral leadership, inspiration and support. It is a place in which respect for others is mandatory. And, something we never forget - it is a place where young people can, and should, have, fun”.
Barry Walsh, former member and former chairman of St Andrew’s Club

What our supporters say about us
"One of the positive parts of 2020 was building closer links with the youth hubs. It has been inspirational to see the work you do at St Andrew's for the local community and now the connection with the Family Hub is really positive."
Jayne Vertkin, Head of Early Help, Family Services, City of Westminster, January 2021
“There is knife crime, there is gang crime, there is gun crime. All of those things are deeply, deeply troubling and disturbing, and a place like [St Andrew’s Club] makes it possible to draw people away, who are at risk of being drawn in.”
Cllr Ruth Bush, Lord Mayor of Westminster, 2019-20
“St Andrew’s Club is such a triumph – and continues to live up to its long and proud reputation. Its purpose, support and distraction embodies all the good work needed to help the mental health and wellbeing of our local young people – my particular passion.”
Cllr Lindsey Hall, Lord Mayor of Westminster, 2018-19
“St Andrew’s Club has created an amazing legacy. I am passionate about social mobility and organisations like the Club with its stellar reputation across Westminster are highly regarded”.
The Right Worshipful The Lord Mayor of Westminster, Councillor Ian Adams 2017-18
“Thank you for the work that the Club does with young people in Westminster and it is a testament to you that you are still providing this service 150 years after the first Club opened. I wish you well for the next 150 years".
Cllr Nickie Aiken, Leader of Westminster City Council
“I can’t imagine how many lives St Andrew’s Club has changed in the course of 150 years”.
Councillor Steve Summers, The Lord Mayor of Westminster 2016-17
“We really enjoyed working with Adrian and the kids on the projects - they really are a great bunch!"
