North Paddington Youth Club
The North Paddington Club is a purpose built club which provides informal educative services to young people between the ages of 8-21. We aim to encourage young people to participate in a safe and friendly enviroment which allows them to explore issues relevent to their situation and needs activities are therefore centred on developemental group work designed to expand on discursive skills and giving them opportunities to challenge obstacles they may face. We encourage activities which stretch and challenge young people i.e computer skills, fitness, cooking, football, cricket, tennis, dance, music, photography, film makings plus a whole host of other physical and non-physical activities. We also encourage participation in our youth forums and provide workshop on drug awareness, sex education, gang related sessions amongst others.
We also provide holiday programmes where we offer activities such as: scuba diving, sky diving, horse riding, swimming and flying lessons.
The Youth Club is currently closed for redevelopment - so the staff are available through outreach sessions, workinbg with young people and preparing for the relaunch of a new Club in 2017/18.
