About The Salmon Youth Centre in Bermondsey

The Salmon Youth Centre

The Salmon Youth Centre 43 Old Jamaica Road London, SE16 4TE

The centre has been reaching out to young people in inner city London for over a hundred years. They welcome around 500 young people every week. Our doors are open to all young people, from all backgrounds, between six and 24 years, building long-term relationships with young people through regular social interaction.

Every week the centre runs five open access clubs and over twenty specialised clubs, including arts, sports and training sessions. Their targeted youthwork includes disability work, girls work, NEET work (young people Not in Education, Employment or Training), apprenticeships, young volunteers, Duke of Edinburgh Awards, day trips and residentials.



The young people they centre works with may be:

  • in care or leaving care;

  • an ex offender leaving prison

  • a young carer looking after a parent

  • young people facing abuse at home

  • those at risk of homelessness or offending

  • young people with disabilities

"We believe that every young person has potential and we work intensively to inspire young people to reach their potential and contribute positively to the community in which they live"

Salmon Youth Centre Work Model

The Salmon Youth Centre in Bermondsey has been reaching out to young people in inner city London for over a hundred years.

Salmon’s youth work model is based on the foundation of “open access” for all young people. Our multi-purpose facilities and our skilled staff members provide a safe place and purpose for young people from the ages of six to 24. Salmon Youth Centre supports young people’s transition to adulthood

Salmon membership is free and once the young people are in, the centre works to promote positive change in them and support their transition to adulthood in three key ways:

  • Improving Young People’s Health & Wellbeing and encouraging a continuous development of healthy eating habits and lifestyle;
  • Involving Young People in Positive Community Engagement through boosting their volunteering activities and political and spiritual awareness, increasing their ability to relate to others in the wider society;
  • Preparing Young People for Education and Work with the overall aim of improving their educational attainent, providing access to relevant training opportunities and supporting them in gaining meaningful employment.

Good relationships are key

In order to achieve these three key objectives, the centre concentrates on building good relationships with young people through various activities. They undertake over 32 sessions and 60 mentoring relationships a week and run 60 day trips and 10 residentials a year.

Their programme includes children and youth work (6-9s, 10-13s and 14+) in sports, adventure, drama, dance and music, as well as detached youth work, outreach, mentoring, working with young people with disability, providing prison after-care support, assisting with school work, and carrying out group and one-to-one work.

Building good relationships opens the door to provide support to young people – especially the most vulnerable and disadvantaged – in their personal lives, whether by dealing with challenging behaviours or intervening in the crisis situations and multi-faceted issues these young people often face.
