Who is this service available to?

Established in 1948, Caxton Youth Organisation works with young people with disabilities between the ages of 11 and 25, who are resident in the City of Westminster.

How do you access this service?

Following a referral from a professional, parents/ guardian or a young person themselves, we arrange for the young person to come along to the Youth Club for a visit with a parent/carer.


During the visit, the young person and their family receive a guided tour of the Youth Club, are introduced to the workers and the young people, gain an insight into the organisation’s services and provide the Youth Workers with the opportunity to access the young person’s needs and ensure that we can safely meet them.


After this initial visit, the young person and their parent/guardian will need to complete a “New Member Form,” and then we can arrange transport (if required).

How do we ensure the quality of this service?


  • Caxton Youth Organisation holds a PQASSO quality mark and is working towards a bronze level London Youth quality mark. The organisation is committed to only providing services that have its member’s seal of approval.


We ensure by obtaining feedback in the following ways:



  • Contract monitoring by Westminster City Council, as well as grant giving bodies

  • Annual Caxton Member’s Questionnaire

  • Annual Parent/Guardian Feedback Form

  • Young Person’s Representative: Each year, two members are elected by their peers to represent them on Caxton’s Management Committee, which meets every 8 weeks.

  • Individual Activity Feedback: For each activity delivered, we obtain feedback from participants to ascertain whether their needs were met, and to gather guidance for future work.

  • What’s Next Forum: A quarterly young person led forum through which Caxton’s members decide the direction and focus of the organisation’s activities at the Youth Club, and the Outdoor Base.
