The Salmon Youth Centre
Salmon Youth Centre has been reaching out to and supporting young people in inner city London for over a hundred years. The Centre welcomes around 500 young people every week. Their doors are open to all young people, from all backgrounds, between six and 25 years old. They promote positive change in young people and support their transition to adulthood in three key ways:
- Improving young people’s Health & Wellbeing
- Preparing young people for Education & Work
- Involving young people in positive Community Engagement
What they offer
Salmon provide generic and specialised youth work to young people across 35 weekly sessions, including activities such as adventure, arts, dance, drama, music and sports.
Their targeted provision also includes an apprenticeship scheme, Salmon Express (improving young people’s speaking and listening skills), mentoring (offering one-to-one support, including a disability befriending scheme), Mixables & Mixters (youth work with disabled young people aged 12-25), and their Young Leaders’ Programme (giving young people an opportunity to influence their peers, and build their skills and experience for the future).
Every young person has potential
- Young people in care or leaving care.
- Young ex-offenders leaving prison.
- Young carers looking after a parent.
- Young people facing abuse at home.
- Young people at risk of homelessness or offending.
- Disabled young people.
Their aim is to build long-term relationships with young people through regular social interaction. Every young person has potential and SYC strives to inspire young people to fulfil it and contribute positively to the community in which they live.
