Chorley Youth Zone self-labled Inspire by young people will be a purpose-built facility for the town’s young people aged 8 – 19, and up to 25 for those with disabilities.
Chorley Youth Zone, which will be headed by Chairman Andrew Turner, has a confirmed site on Railway Street, where The Arts Partnership and Leigh Arms currently stands and building work commenced in January 2017 with work expected to be completed in early 2018.
The Youth Zone is being created in partnership with Chorley Council, the Arts Partnership and Lancashire County Council to make this a reality for Chorley’s young people.
This infrastructure of facilities is based upon our 21st Century Youth Facility Model and young people from across Chorley will have access to all these fantastic facilities for a cost of £5 for an annual membership and 50p per visit. The Youth Zone will provide a safe environment where young people can come and enjoy themselves and will enable young people to raise their aspirations and confidence to create a happier and healthier generation.
