Young Peoples Services
For young people aged between 10 and 21
Highbury Roundhouse collaborates with Islington Young People's services and the Greater London Authority to provide a place for teenagers to socialise, play games or participate in structured activities.
Our Youth Services accepts all young people and encourages them to achieve their full potential as individuals.
We support young people to develop their personal and social responsibility by offering a range of opportunities to socialise, learn new skills and through appropriate advice, guidance and support, we help them to thrive.
This project is supported by the Mayor of London and the London Borough of Islington.

Certificate of Recognition from the Mayor
We are thrilled to have received a certificate of recognition for providing aspirational and positive activities for young Londoners to help them fulfill their potential through the Mayor’s Young Londoners Fund.
These past few years have been a particularly challenging time for young people and as they face the rising cost of living in London and the uncertainties that come with this, support from a trusted relationship is critical. Highbury Roundhouse have demonstrated that when times are tough, it is even more important to provide quality youth services.

Young Londoners Research Programme
Highbury Roundhouse is proud to have partnered with the Young Londoners Research Programme, commissioned by the Greater London Authority.
We researched young people's access to mental health support, reviewing the barriers to services and making sure that mental health has the right profile in our communities.
90 young Islington residents aged between 13 and 18 year-olds took take part in our research,
The research findings will be used to shape Highbury Roundhouse's youth offer. They will also be shared with policymakers working on the New Deal for Young People.

Interest & Hobbies:
How did you find out about youth club?
I used to go to the afterschool club in my primary school. The manager of the afterschool club also manages the Highbury Roundhouse Youth Club. She informed me about it after attending for the first time. I saw the programme and activities they have and though that it would be a good space to build on my hobbies.
What do you look forward to when attending the Youth Club?
The Youth Club is a space where I feel I can be myself. For me it is like home away from home. It is a time where I can focus on myself and let loose with the staff and my friends. They recently bought gym equipment. I try to use it to keep myself fit but also love a game of football on the pitch.
Has the youth club changed or improved your views in any aspects?
This is the first youth club I have ever attended, I have improved my confidence and it has given me the opportunity to take part in workshops such as LEAP- self leadership, cooking, graffiti and fitness. It has enabled me to expand my skills, knowledge and ability to focus on what I am interested in the most.
Where do you see yourself in the near future? Any other comment!
I hope to finish secondary school and enroll to college to study sports because my dream is to become a basketball player. Once I finish college, my goal is to go to university and work towards a sponsorship opportunity.
