The Avenues is one of London's leading youth centres, established 40 years ago we exist to support children and young people from 8 to 18. 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 of through our various programmes and activities.

Fundraising Appeal

Avenues 40th Anniversary Fundraising appeal aims to raise £400,000 to make investments in our future including adaptations and improvements to our building so we can rent out our dance studio, recording studios and professional kitchen during the daytime when the kids are at school. The additional rental return will enable greater financial resilience and independence. Find out more about the Appeal - download the leaflet.

During the years 1999 – 2002, the Avenues’ Management Committee raised over £2m to build a purpose built youth centre which replaced the single storey breeze block building opened in 1979. We now operate out of a 2 storey building.  A large part of the ground floor underwent a major refurbishment in 2017, the Fundraising Appeal will enable us to continue the improvements through the rest of the building, ensuring first class amenity for all our centre users and hirers. www.avenues.org.uk/donate
