About The Gap Youth Club
Open to LGBTQ young people aged 13 to 19 (or 25 with a disability), The Gap meets every Friday from 6 to 8pm in the Clapham Junction area.
The Gap offers a wide variety of activities, so there is something for all of our members.
Some weeks we have a themed activity such as a team building challenge and other weeks all the games are in use with some members getting involved and others choosing just to sit back, relax and enjoy the entertainment.
We have all the youth club equipment that you'd want at The Gap:
- Pool tables
- Table tennis
- Table football
- Wii with some hectic, loud and fun games
- DVD player if we’re in the mood for a film night
We also run workshops and activities based on what our members have asked for:
- Self defence lessons
- Sex and relationship information
- Debate nights
- Guest speakers
- Fancy dress nights.
We always welcome suggestions from our members, so if you have a hobby or interest that you think other members would enjoy too, just let us know and we’ll do our best to deliver!
Comments from Gap members and parents
It might seem a little over dramatic or cliché, but the GAP really did change my life, the people, the support, the friendly place to just unwind and forget about everything else going on in your life, to think that I may not have met the people I’ve met and got the support that I really needed, and I’m not the only one who feels this way!
Its safe and it’s a fun place and the people are nice & friendly
Its changed my life way too much to put into words, I don’t think even the volunteers realize how much they are changing peoples lives and the amount they are moulding us into such better, healthier (both physically and mentally), people! Thank you!
Thank you for being such a star
Our daughter has already found the Gap really great
She so enjoyed last week: the activities but mostly just hanging out with others!
Sincerely, we are grateful to you and your team and all the youngsters at the Gap for making our daughter feel so welcome and for giving her the opportunity to feel part of something with which she can really identify.
