Two new Youth Hubs are coming soon to Kensington and Chelsea: Lancaster Youth Centre in North Kensington by Ladbroke Grove and Chelsea Youth Centre in Chelsea, by the World’s End Estate.
Each hub will run a youth club in the evenings, with a full programme of activities. Come along, join in with the activities or, if you prefer, just relax and get some homework done, sharpen your art skills, chill out and chat, meet new people – it’s up to you!
These hubs, which were shaped by consulting with young residents, are run by the Council with EPIC CIC providing youth club services, meaning that the hubs can provide more for the community than ever before. Rather than the hubs sitting empty while young people are at school, the spaces will be available for residents, local groups, organisations and services working with young people to use throughout the week. More information about how groups can use the spaces will be available soon.
We want the hubs to promote what services are available to young people in Kensington and Chelsea and will ensure that strong partnerships with other local organisations enable this.
More information on how you can use the Hubs will be available soon as well as the full programme of events at each Hub.
Come and get involved
We want local young people to be the first to get a glimpse of the new Hubs, so if you're aged 11 to 18 (25+ SEND) then why not come along to the Hubs on the dates listed below where you can check out the new spaces, see what will be on offer and let us know what could be even better.
