OnSide Youth Zone's vision...

…to give all young people somewhere safe and inspiring to go in their leisure time

Celebrating our young people’s achievements! 

OnSide Awards

Royal Albert Hall, 17th November

Our first ever OnSide Awards will take place at the iconic Royal Albert Hall; an entertaining afternoon of exceptional talent, high emotion and rousing celebration!

This event will be a spectacular occasion, bringing together the whole of the OnSide community to celebrate our young people, volunteers and staff.

The prestigious OnSide Awards will be presented to young people who have made a real difference in their community, have breakthrough talent, or have overcome the most challenging of circumstances.

OnSide Awards


The whole community comes together to take pride in and ownership of the Youth Zone, to ultimately ensure its success. A unique partnership of the private sector, local authority, young people and the community forms a dynamic four-way, inter-connecting relationship, which drives the success of an OnSide Youth Zone.

From conception to completion; the inaugural opening of the doors for business and the ongoing day-to-day functioning of the Youth Zone. From our champions, investors and fundraisers who bring in the money, to the committed team of paid workers and volunteers who deliver an inspiring range of activities and targeted services.  The partnership wouldn’t be complete without the support of local communities and young people’s groups working together to deliver more services to more young people. And most importantly, the young people themselves – their need drives our whole reason for being.

We believe each Youth Zone building conveys a clear message to young people, “You deserve the best”. Our inspiring buildings make a statement about the value each town or city places on its young people. Visible from miles around and packed with exciting, interesting and educational things to do, our Youth Zone buildings are places we can all be proud of.
