The Salmon Youth Centre In Bermondsey
The Salmon Youth Centre in Bermondsey has been reaching out to disadvantaged young people in inner city London for over a hundred years.
We welcome around 500 young people every week. Our doors are open to all young people, from all backgrounds, between six and 24 years. We build long-term relatioships with young people through regular social interaction.
Every week we run six open access clubs and over twenty specialised clubs, including arts, sports and training sessions. Our targeted youthwork includes disability work, girls work, NEET work (young people Not in Education, Employment or Training), apprenticeships, young volunteers, Duke of Edinburgh Awards, day trips and residentials.
The young people we work with may be:
- in care or leaving care;
- an ex offender leaving prison;
- a young carer looking after a parent;
- young people facing abuse at home;
- those at risk of homelessness or offending;
- young people with disabilities.
We believe that every young person has potential and we work intensively to inspire young people to reach their potential and contribute positively to the community in which they live. You can help us with this life changing work and donate to The Salmon Youth Centre!
