Children doing a participatory nutrition activity in their health club

A Children’s Club is a group of children who meet regularly together in their community. They meet to mix with each other, talk about things that interest them, their lives, problems, to have fun and to make friends. It has a formal structure.

For more about what a club is, how it can be best set up, what the benefits are, ideas for activities and more read our Q&A On Setting Up Children’s Clubs article. Once your club is established, read Working with Children in Clubs: Some Tips, it’ll help the club run smoothly and safely. Anyone involved with the club should read our Professional Conduct in Relation to Children, it lays out expectations and ensures everyone is safe. Finally, have a read of Our Favourite Handbooks to use for Children’s Clubs.
