POSITIVE, CREATIVE & FUN

SUPPORTING YOUNG PEOPLE IN NORTH WESTMINSTER

The Avenues takes a youth work approach to support local young people. We enable them to constructively challenge the personal, social and educational disadvantages they face and lead positive, creative and fulfilled lives. They also contribute to the communities of which they are part through our various programme of activites.

Established 1979

The Avenues Youth Project was established in 1979 to provide activities outside of school hours for young people aged 13-19 living in North Westminster. In particular, it was established in recognition of the lack of facilities targeting young Afro-Caribbean people in the area. Since that time the project has grown from strength to strength and in line with the diversity of our local community, we now attract and welcome a wide range of young people from the many different communities that make up Queen’s Park and Westminster as a whole.

During the years 1999 – 2001, the Avenues’ Management Committee raised over £2m to build a purpose built youth centre which replaced the existing single storey breeze block building. We now operate out of a 2 storey building comprising of classrooms, kitchen, dance studio, recording studio, radio room and large hall.
