St Andrew's Club

St Andrew's Club - the worlds oldest youth club - is a vibrant, resource in the heart of Westminster serving the needs of hundreds of inner city children and young people.

The Club offers a safe, family and neutral environment in a diverse and changing neighbourhood. We look at innovative ways to connect with our local young people, providing top-quality youth work to promote their emotional, social and educational development.

Founded 1866

  • Mission statement

    St Andrew's gives to young people of diverse backgrounds, a sense of belonging and fun, in a safe and attractive environment where they develop self confidence, and respect for others and, thereby, their ability to contribute to society as good as citizens.

    St Andrew's youth workers have been trained to have high regard for all aspects of children and young people's wellbeing. We engage our members, from the ages 5 to 19, through an inspiring programme of sport, creative and recreational activities. In addition the Club offers gym and computer provision during the day to older members, many of whom are classified as NEET (not in education, employment or training).

  • Aims

    St Andrew's Club aims to:

    • St Andrew's Club looks to innovative ways to connect with its members, providing top-quality youth work to promote their personal and social development and empower them to realise these hopes.
    • Participation and membership will give more confidence to young people creating greater ambition and increasing wider work and educational options/opportunities.
    • By offering informal education programmes (many of which are accredited) we provide a sense of worth in members not achieving in the formal education system.
    • By participating in the Club's programme young people will be less inclined to commit crime or act in an anti-social way.
    • Engaging our members in positive activities will enable them to develop into responsible members of community.
