Essex Boys and Girls Clubs is a registered UK charity working with young people in Essex and East London, including the districts of Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock and the London boroughs of Redbridge, Barking and Dagenham, Havering, Waltham Forest, Newham and Hackney.

Set up in 1939 as the Essex Association of Boys Clubs, the organisation changed its name in 2006 to Essex Boys and Girls Clubs to reflect the membership of its affiliated youth clubs.

The charity supports young people by working with approximately 120 volunteer-run community youth groups, including multi- and single-sport clubs.

The charity's work includes activity sessions in individual youth clubs, volunteer club leader training and support, arranging inter-club events and competitions, running youth development courses and outdoor skills courses, targeted projects, including The Respect Project, Duke of Edinburgh Award, National Citizen Service and the Jack Petchey Club Improvement Scheme in partnership with the Jack Petchey Foundation and the YMCA George Williams College.
