About Surrey Clubs for Young People:

We are a charity that is passionate about supporting communities to provide youth clubs and we are dedicated to ensuring that young people across Surrey and South London have access to safe spaces with high quality youth provision.

Youth clubs are safe places to go that allow young people to build positive relationships outside of what can often be chaotic home lives. We meet young people on their own terms supporting them to experience new things and grow both in confidence and resilience.

Our aim is to provide enthusiastic youth clubs; a place we can show young people that someone cares. And offer a range of exciting and challenging opportunities, through which they can develop into confident young adults. Leading happy lives whilst making a positive contribution to their wider community and to society.
