Perdiswell Young People's Leisure Club -

Perdiswell Young People's Leisure Club is a well-established, self-supporting, independent, charitable organisation, our aims are to help and educate young people in the City of Worcester and surrounding districts and to support other charitable organisations, with the emphasis on individuals who are in some way disadvantaged.  A team of dedicated voluntary and paid staff undertake various roles and activities to further the Club's aims.

The Club was formed in 1976, and for many years scores of young people met in an old wartime asbestos nissen hut.  However, it was envisaged that a new building could be utilised not only for the young, but also to cater for the needs of the local community as a whole.  A programme of fund-raising began and in 1986 the Club gained charitable status. Sufficient funding was raised and the new building opened in 1989. Further fund-raising enabled a much-needed extension to be built in 1994, to meet the demands.  

In 2000 we provided a further two-storey building consists of an extended reception area, a large multi-purpose activity room, large purpose-built training rooms a lift for the disabled to the first floor, extra toilet facilities including disabled, and a office.

In July 2003 we formed a wholly owned subsidiary company, registered with Companies House, to enable the Club to carry out non-charitable activities; this enables the Club to give support to the local community.

As a result of consultation with young people countywide and following successful fund-raising during 2004/05 we have provided a Skate Park and Youth Lodge at a cost of £500,000 for the young people of Worcester and surrounding areas.  The Skate Park is a concrete construction and includes bowls, flat banks, spines and various ramps that meet the different skill levels of boarder’s, bladder’s and BMX’s.

The adjoining Youth Lodge is also open every day of the week and is supervised by youth workers offering activities for disadvantaged young people at risk from the social housing estates, one-parent families and disabled young people from the special schools in the area.

Further young people’s educational and recreational activities are offered in the Club’s main building, including Senior and Junior Youth Clubs, an Inclusion Project for young people with disabilities, complex health needs and challenging behaviour, Summer Activity Schemes and Special Events.  

The Club’s minibuses are used throughout the year for transporting young people attending our activities and are also made available to enable many other youth clubs and groups in the City to organise their own programmes of trips and activities.

Many other young people’s groups use our facilities to hold their activities and training events.  Young people take an active part in the running and management of youth club sessions and various other Club events.  During the daytime the Club offers facilities for all ages of the community.
