OnSide Youth Zone's vision...

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

Hear This London...

Paula, an OnSide Ambassador for London, speaks in her own words about what it feels like to be a young person in London and how she believes every single young person in the Capital deserves a Youth Zone.  New experiences are offered, horizons broadened, expectations stretched, and aspirations raised in a safe and empowering environment, helping to support young people forge a healthier and happier future and reach their full potential.

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.
