Westminster House Youth Club, Southwark

CBRE helped Westminster House Youth Club with planning build-to-rent apartments to increase the charity's income.

Westminster House Youth Club in Nunhead, Southwark, provides homework help, IT facilities, activities, and the opportunity to achieve qualifications that enhance their young members’ chances to gain employment. Their 200+ members are affected by a range of problems, including high unemployment, crime, drugs, and violence.

The charity is considering constructing build-to-rent apartments on its site in order to increase its income. CBRE assisted Westminster House Youth Club with a right to daylight survey, design options and brief development to maximise their use of space.

Katie Worthington, Director at Westminster House Youth Club, says: “We are extremely grateful to CBRE. They started us along a path towards developing our building to make our space and reserves work more efficiently for us. They helped us to understand a number of the issues we would need to negotiate. They gave us some lovely plans which have informed our work going forward."
