The Downside Fisher Youth Club supports socially excluded children and young people from Bermondsey and its neighbouring areas, and helps them to fulfil their potential as capable, confident young adults through a structured programme of sporting, educational, artistic and recreational activities.

The club owns an extensive range of sporting and recreational facilities, and are able to offer challenging experiences and learning opportunities that are not otherwise easily available to young people in this deprived area of London. As a result, the club is highly valued in the local community for its role in teaching club members respect and fair play, and broadening their horizons.

The club is currently open to 9-25 year olds of both sexes (although most members are aged 11-19) and has a lively mix of young people from different ethnic and social backgrounds.
