Your donation gives opportunities to young people in need

It’s hard being a young person in London today, and those in our community face more challenges than most. In addition to the usual teenage pressures there’s a lack of space to play, the threat of violence, a lack of opportunities and genuine fears about their futures.

It’s easy to take the wrong path.

Our team of youth professionals guides young people to develop positive relationships, find their confidence and learn new skills in a fun way, enabling them to make better lifestyle choices.

We rely entirely on donations and fundraising. To support 600 young people every year we need to raise around £100,000 from community donations. Please join our growing band of supporters.

All donations, large and small, are welcome but regular giving is especially helpful as it allows us to plan ahead with certainty. Thank you.

Training kitchen

New kitchen

With food playing such an important role at The Avenues, a new kitchen with modern equipment and prep stations will allow us train more young people to cook, so they can live healthily and find employment in catering.  It will also allow us to generate rental income from commercial and community partners when not being used for youth activities.

Target £98,000 (over £80,000 raised)
