Youth engagement

Paragon is committed to helping local young people make the most of where they live. We work in partnership with local Youth services and other local agencies to help young people make the most of their time.


In Elmbridge we are supporters of the Football in the Community Project, which works in the St John’s area.  The project’s website explains that: 

“In June 2016, Elite Sporting Provision launched KT One Two Football Development - offering free football sessions in the borough of Elmbridge.

The provision is carried out in partnership with Elmbridge Borough Council sports development officer Emily Lewis and staff at Paragon Community Housing who has been a great support and backer of the programme.

The sessions are carried out three times a week and are partitioned off into gender and age groups. The audience have varied backgrounds and also support those with learning difficulties and disabilities.

Over the course of the programme, ESP have now welcomed in excess of over 60 young people through our door with the project proving a huge success whilst helping install confidence and focus through sporting development.”

The sessions run at Walton Oaks school – 

Monday - 4.30 to 5.30pm – (6-9 years old)

Tuesday - 4.30 to 5.30pm – (10-14 years old)

Friday - 4.30 to 5.30pm – (girls only).

In Richmond we work closely with Hampton Youth Project and you should check our events pages for any activity that we may promote during the school holidays.

Pre-School Projects

Both are aimed at providing good quality, affordable pre-school provision and many of our residents already take advantage of the projects.   If you would be interested in booking a place please do contact the providers directly.
