History of the Building
Bognor Regis Youth Club & Community Centre, Registered Charity Number 305343,opened by the Duke of Gloucester in1938, was built on land which was donated by a local businessman and a massive fundraising drive took place to raise funds to build a ‘Boys Club’ which supported boys, particularly during the war years.
Since then, the centre has also been a Youth Club and more recently a Community Centre, independently owned by the community, for the community and overseen by four deed trustees and run by volunteers from the local community. The centre running costs rely on low cost hire fees to small community groups, organisations, the community and a variety of small businesses and statutory groups.
The centre has two offices one of which is accommodated by Bognor CAN Charity number 1117226, who provides a variety of community led initiatives aimed to improve quality of life for people living in the deprived areas of Bognor Regis and the other is occupied by Coastal West Sussex Mind (company no. 8884776, registered charity number 1155918)
