Young people and families

When the Copleston Centre first opened, in 1978, we had a special commitment to providing services for young people. Our constitution has changed since then, but providing a space for activities for young people and children is still very much a part of what we do.

Part of our building is used by Destiny Nursery and, separately, we also provide a range of after-school clubs, play opportunities and mental health services which welcome those of all ages.

 

3rd Southwark Scout Group

The Scouts are the UK's biggest mixed youth organisation.

We change lives by offering 6 to 25 year olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.

Every year we help over 450,000 young people in the UK enjoy new adventures; to experience the outdoors; interact with others, gain confidence and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Copleston is the home of the 3rd Southwark Scout Group. We have been running both our Beaver Scouts section for 6–8 year olds and our Cub Scouts section for 8–10 year olds, for over a year now on Wednesday evenings. (Beavers 5.30pm - 6.30pm; Cubs 6.30pm - 8pm)

On Friday 14th September 7pm - 8.30pm we are  starting a new Scouts section for young people ages 10 to 14 year olds

Enrol your child in Scouts.

Volunteer with our Scout group.

Stay and Play - Parent and Toddler Group

Heatley Hall, our church hall, is a big bright space which makes it perfect for hosting parents, carers and little ones, whatever the weather. We have a range of play equipment, including slides, tunnels and toys, and we also usually involve structured play in most sessions. There’s often singing as well! Stay and Play happens every Tuesday morning in term time and is a great way to keep toddlers entertained and learn through playing together. There’s tea and coffee for the grown-ups and refreshments for little ones, too.
