Invitation to Participate: Oral Histories of Youth Clubs in South London and Liverpool 1958-1985

I am looking for people to interview for my PhD research on youth clubs in South London (principally the present day boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham) and Liverpool between 1958 and c.1985. If you had anything to do with youth clubs in these places, at these times, I would like to invite you to participate in my research. I am interested in the memories and experiences of people around youth clubs. What were the clubs like? Who went to them? How were they run? What did young people think of their local youth clubs? How did the people who worked or volunteered in clubs see young people?

While my research focuses on voluntary youth clubs I would like to hear from people involved in local authority clubs and church-run clubs as well.

The people I am looking to talk to might have been:

  • youth club members
  • youth leaders
  • youth workers
  • detached youth workers
  • instructors
  • members of management committees
  • office staff

If you think this might mean you and you may be willing to be interviewed you can find full details by downloading the Information Sheet.  I can also arrange to call you to discuss the project. Making an enquiry does not commit you to an interview, but I sincerely hope you will consider sharing your experiences with me.

For further details of how to participate in the project, please contact:
