“To help and educate young people through their leisure time activities so as to develop their physical, mental and spiritual capacities that they may grow to full maturity as individuals and members of society, and that their conditions of life may be improved”
The Birkenhead Youth Club started life as The Birkenhead Boys Club in 1932, the prime mover in its establishment being the late Harry France, a Probation Officer, subsequently Senior Probation Officer, in Birkenhead. He had for some time been a leader in a group of Boy Scouts which met in a small building known as the Borough Prize Band Hall near the Birkenhead Docks. He, and some of his colleagues, found that a number of boys who wanted to join the Scouts were unable to do so because their parents could not afford the uniform.
The Club relies on donations and volunteers to support and help organise the many activities on offer and any assistance is most welcome to help at the club or with the many activities that happen outside of the club including:
7-a-side Girls football teams 11-a-side Boys, Girls, Youth, Men and Ladies football teams
