Many young people across the length and breadth of the country but especially in disadvantaged areas lead lives which are dull, lonely and often dangerous.
With thanks to the help of our partners, OnSide offers a solution: Youth Zones – safe havens where passionate youth workers, supported by an army of volunteers, deliver a host of stimulating activities and also offer advice and support to help young people develop the resilience, skills and strategies required to lead successful lives.
- 7 Youth Zones opened with six more scheduled to be built in Preston, Warrington, Chorley, Barking and Dagenham, Croydon and Barnet, with many more in the pipeline.
- Over 20,000 young lives enhanced by opportunities to engage, aspire and achieve
- Local communities united by Youth Zones– young people with diverse backgrounds, cultures and abilities working in harmony resulting in up to 77% decrease in anti-social behaviour
- 200 new jobs created and over 700 volunteers recruited
