Leeds youth clubs

20 Feb 2009 by Karl Hallam

Hunslett in Leeds has a great club for young people. The staff are committed and entrepeneurial. Soon there may be another big club, funded by Myplace, about a mile away. Some local people suggest this is not good planning and that the consultation was not very effective in terms of engaging the VCF sector.

We do not have the full story, but if it is how it sounds it does seem a bit daft. The Blueprint for club based youth work we are working on will have something to say about the range of provision in an area. 2 big clubs so close together would not be in the proposed standards, but if they work together, offering different programmes it could still work.

The Blueprint should be published in the spring.
