St Mary's Youth Club


With increasing gang related violence amongst young people, Span Trust were keen to support local community efforts to help vulnerable children in the Camden wards where 28% of young people in the area live in poverty. St Mary’s Youth Club aims to improve the opportunities of young people at risk of social exclusion, facing violence, domestic abuse, drug use at home and those with mental health problems. Through the provision of safe and reliable services every day of the year, SMCCT offers a unique support system for youths at risk of becoming involved in gangs and crime. Span Trust will support SMCCT for the next three years to employ a new youth worker who will undertake outreach and mentoring programmes in the area.
