More about TNG

TNG was built in 2012, funded as part of the national ‘Myplace’ scheme, and in partnership with Millwall, the Football foundation, Rio Ferdinand Foundation and the young people of Sydenham Wells Park. The latter had a massive impact on securing the funding for the site through various meetings with decision makers and even traveling overseas to learn from successful youth centres across Europe.

The centre is a £3.5m award-winning design, and built using a mix of conventional materials (concrete, plastic cladding and wood) to create an ultra- modern 1,200m2 space that signals to young people that they are cared about and can aspire to great things.

The site is the largest of Youth First's centres and acts a hub for the local community, working closely with local schools such as Eliot Bank and Kelvin Grove as well as a centre for various borough-wide youth work.

TNG's most obvious evidence of success is the variety of users of all ages who come through the door throughout the day. With its massive hall, café, climbing wall and music studio, it often hosts up-and-coming talent. It’s only a matter of time before it launches a star.

This is best summed up by the slogan made into a neon sign above the entrance: "One centre, unlimited opportunities".

From Tue 5 January 2021, England enters another lockdown and the youth sector moves into RED in the National Youth Agency's readiness framework.

This means that we can run:

  • Online + digital youth services
  • Detached/outdoor local youth services

and with high-need/vulnerable young people, we can run:

  • 1-2-1 sessions
  • Small group work sessions, by invite only
