Our Mission Statement
"FYC exists to provide high quality recreational and educational activities to young people in Year 6 to Year 12, within a safe and supportive Christian environment, to help promote their social, emotional and spiritual well-being and to maximise their leadership potential."
What is Furzedown Youth Centre
FYC was established in 2003 by local people who saw that there was nowhere for young people in Furzedown to meet safely with their friends. It was set up and supported by three local churches: St James, St Alban’s (both Church of England) and Mitcham Lane Baptist and welcomes all young people irregardless of race, gender, culture, sexuality or religion.
FYC is a safe and secure place where young people can develop socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually. We provide fun activities that aim to challenge and encourage young people and we always make sure there is time to talk with young people, listening to what’s happening in their lives and supporting them in whatever way we can. Over the years a number of young people who have attended FYC sessions have joined our volunteer team and have begun putting into practice what they have learnt by helping others.
