Springfield Youth Club
Welcome To Springfield Youth Club
It gives me, Paul Stewart great pleasure as Executive Chairman to welcome you to our Springfield Youth Club website.
Since September of 1961, we have been offering a safe and secure environment for young people in the Hackney area to join us and engage in structured activities from which they can learn and develop skills across many disciplines.
As you will see from the “about us section” we benefit from a wonderful team of volunteers who generously support us with their time and energy allowing us as a youth club to play an important part in our young members lives and that of the community.
In today’s hypercompetitive charity fund-raising environment, a youth club such as ours faces considerable headwinds to keep our youth work relevant and interesting enough to attract young people to our club. Our running costs are extremely low so the vast majority of money that we generate goes directly into activities that benefit our young members.
Any support that we get makes a big difference and is, I can promise, extremely effective. Our Management Committee is fortunate to have very skilled and experienced individuals who give their time freely and at their own expense.
I hope you will enjoy browsing our website and if there is anything that you or someone you know who may be in a position to help us, please do let us know.
We are enormously privileged to have HRH Prince Michael of Kent as our Patron and Sir Jackie Stewart as our President. We thank them both for their enthusiasm and continued support of Springfield.

Services and Life Skills
One of the most pressing issues clubs like Springfield face, is how best to support young people, by providing the foundation on which their personalities, life skills can be developed; enabling them to become productive contributing individuals of society is closely linked to experiences at early adolescence.
"Volunteers, a precious resource we cannot afford to lose".
