Disraeli Downley Youth Club is based at St James’s Hall 3 or 4 Monday evenings a month. Sessions are from 7 to 9pm. All young people are welcome from school year 6 (the last year before transfer to upper schools) up to age 16. That includes visitors as well as residents and young people just dropping in to see what we’re like. Club nights are supported by enthusiastic volunteers including assistant volunteers who are ex club members. Action4Youth, a local charity, has support including CRB checks and training for our volunteers.

We work in conjunction with youth groups (the Downley Sports Association (Dynamos, Albion, Colts and Cricket Club) and other clubs and societies, as well as schools, faith groups, councils and other local and national organisations interested in opportunities for young people.

We welcome any voluntary support or aid and would be delighted to hear from potential members, would-be volunteers and from candidates for the management team.

Please get in touch with Martin Birkett - Chair of the Disraeli Downley Youth Steering Group or turn up on a club night. Parents, too, are welcome to look in on club nights.
