About this cause
The aim of The Brunswick Club for Young People is to provide a safe, friendly environment in which children and young people can develop their physical, creative, mental and social skills through leisure activities. Originally formed in 1949 - with donations made by British prisoners of war held in Brunswick, Germany - the strong traditions and values of the club have seen it thrive. It is now a purpose-built youth centre in the heart of Fulham, offering educational and leisure facilities to children and young people from low-income families. Providing services six days a week, with an active membership of over 750 and an average daily attendance of 82, the club enjoys a strong level of support and respect within the local community.
How this cause brings people in the community together
The project will bring together disadvantaged children from different ethnic backgrounds to enjoy a range of exciting activities, in which they will improve their confidence, develop social skills, build new and stronger friendships, gain a sense of belonging and have lots of fun. Parents and the wider community will gain from the children being positively engaged during the holidays.
