We run the John Innes Youth Centre in Wimbledon, a few minutes walk away from South Wimbledon tube station. We run an open access (drop in) session on Wednesdays which give young people from year 7 upwards the opportunity to play sports and games, listen to music and chill out from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. We also work with young people in a number of targeted ways through one-to-one work and closed groups such as our leadership programme where young people are developing their knowledge and skills to lead the club into the future in partnership with the staff team.
We also offer room hire from this venue and provide a discount for organisations working with young people, charities and block bookings. The centre is fully accessible and comprises a sports hall, music studio, lounge area, fully equipped kitchen and teaching or meeting rooms. All hire fees support the youth work at the centre.
If you are interested in any of these programmes or would like to know more, please contact Paul Rook, Merton Youth Coordinator on 020 8542 6216 or firstname.lastname@example.org
