Eyres Monsell Club For Young People

Description

The Eyres Monsell Club for Young People is a youth centre. Eyres Monsell is an area of social deprivation in Leicester City West, it is among some of the most disadvantaged wards in the whole of Leicestershire. The area suffers from anti-social behaviour and there are a lack of opportunities for young people to use their recreational time constructively. Eyres Monsell Club for Young People aims to offer opportunities to engage young people and encourage them to achieve their maximum potential in their personal and social development.

The club was formed in the 1960s as part of the old Boys Club organisation and has been a part of the Estates history and make up since its opening. The club is now known as Club for Young People and welcomes both males and females to the centre.  The club is a voluntary sector youth club which relies on grants from funding pots and trusts, and it is also a registered charity. The club is made up of a management committee, full-time qualified youth worker, part time youth worker, sessional staff, two new apprentices and volunteers. 

For the past three years the club has received funding from the Big Lottery Young Peoples Fund; this has enabled us to employ a full-time youth worker, part-time youth worker and sessional staff. The employment of these staff has meant continuity and stability for the club and young people, and the club being open for five nights a week and has a thriving membership of young people that attend and take part in the various programmes and activities.
