Boys & Girls Clubs was founded in 1940 as an independent, voluntary association of six local youth clubs. Today, we are a regional voluntary youth organisation
(RVYO), a registered charity and limited company with a membership of 120 local youth organisations.
Our mission is to support the personal development and social education of children & young people, and to promote good relations and community development.
Each year we work directly with around 2500 young people, staff and volunteers.
We deliver membership support services, training, networking opportunities, policy guidance, youth projects and an extensive programme of youth activities.
Our current youth work priorities are about supporting young people’s health & well-being, life skills, physical activities, training & development projects and information & support services.
We aim to create conditions that inspire and enable young people to be their best in the pursuit of shared goals.

Boys & Girls Clubs is here for you – we’ve changed how we work but are here to support our membership of local youth organisations and the wider voluntary youth & community sector.
