The Rotherham Blackburn Club For Young People

We are a community centre focused on young people and their families. We provide open access youth clubs which are ever changing to meet the needs of the local community. We work with all ages of the community from out parent and toddler group through to our community days.
Blackburn is an isolated area on the outskirts of Rotherham and we are the only provision in the area. We have a small team of dedicated staff and volunteers who are passionate about the people in Blackburn.

Founded 1974

  • Mission statement

    Blackburn Club for Young People provides a safe, supportive and welcoming environment for young people between the ages of 8 and 19 years. We will deliver a service for and with young people, which will engage with young people and actively involve them in decision- making processes. We aim to be at the heart of the local community, working with all groups within the community and from the wider area.

    Our core values of respect, empowerment, valuing difference, equality, education and participation enable young people to explore the interaction between themselves, their peers and society. We strive to be fully inclusive, and work hard to meet the needs of all who come through our door. The club policy develops understanding of diversity and increases mutual respect and sensitivity towards others who have additional needs.

    Through the dynamic, creative and innovative programmes, activities and ethos of the club, the leaders guide and support young people and act as mentors and role models in their personal, social and spiritual development. The programmes that the club provides create opportunity for the young people to develop into mature and responsible adults who will play their part in the community.
