On Wednesday 31st of May, Rathbone Youth Team were invited to celebrate London Youth’s 130th Anniversary at Buckingham Palace. This great milestone was celebrated by transforming the Buckingham Palace Gardens into a youth club for the afternoon. The day also marked 70 years of patronage from HRH The Duke of Edinburgh of the charity.
One of our youth club members were selected to attend the event, where he was able to take part in a host of activities, from tennis and rock climbing to catapult-making and Fencing.
Our Youth Service Manager, who is also a Trustee at London Youth commented “it was great to be a part of such a huge milestone celebration! Meeting other organisations that are doing fantastic work across London to support, encourage and inspire young people was a definite highlight of the day. And of course meeting HRH The Duke of Edinburgh was great too!”
A huge THANK YOU to London Youth for inviting us to be a part of such a super event!
A massive well done to the Rathbone Youth Management Team (YMT) for winning the Youth Social Action Award at the London Youth Awards 2017!
The Youth Social Action Award focuses on organisations that have gone above and beyond the ordinary in their dedication to inspiring and supporting young Londoners to lead change in their communities and their own lives.
Through our Youth Management Team we do just that! We encourage and support young people who wouldn’t otherwise have got involved in social action to have a say on and impact the services available to young people and their local community. This is done through involvement in forums, funding presentations and empowering young people to take on leadership roles within the youth club. Our YMT is a fully integrated youth forum that brings together both mainstream and young people with disabilities to take the lead on making decisions on how the youth service is run.
Winning this award gives well deserved recognition to the hard work, time and energy that the YMT members selflessly give to make their youth club the best it can be.
We are extremely proud of the youth workers, volunteers and young people for this great achievement!

There was lots of colour on show during tonight’s dance session. We started the session talking about the NYDC performance that we went to see at Sadlers Wells last Wednesday. The three main themes we took from the show was breath, spoken word and rhythm. For the next two weeks we will be looking at breath so the dancers had lots of fun with blowing and creating a colourful studio.
The young people were blowing a handful of colourful tissue paper then tried to catch them with beautiful dance moves. This showed real creation from all the young people as they all showed their individual styles.
