Geographical remit: 


Knights Youth Centre has provided a safe, fun, inclusive and engaging place for thousands of young people since 1936. It offers a diverse service for all young people aged 8-24 regardless of their gender, race, religion, sexuality or disability. We are the largest provider of youth services in and around the Clapham Park estate in Lambeth, an area of high social and economic need. Most of our members live in the area, but the impact of our work reaches across Lambeth. Between 150 and 200 young people visit the centre each week and many young people attend three or four times per week.


In addition to ‘standard’ activities, we provide sports coaching, offsite trips, regular residentials, international social action programmes, music and video production, specialised work with girls, arts and dance, and access to IT equipment. 

Crucially, we also undertake targeted outreach with young people who, through disengagement with ‘traditional’ services, are at risk of involvement with gangs, drugs and anti-social behaviour. 

Knights have developed an innovative youth work apprenticeship programme called TYLAP, which provides leadership, training, qualifications & employment opportunities for 30 young people in youth & community work each year.
