Our Youth Zones...

Something to do

Youth Zones are packed with inspiring group and individual activities, overseen and supported by paid experts and an ‘army’ of volunteers.​​​​​​​  Alongside accessing their own Youth Zone, young people have the opportunity to take part in residential trips which boost confidence and broaden horizons as well as enter inter-Youth Zone events where young people they will travel, meet and compete with others.

Someone to talk to 

Youth Zones are a place where young people can engage with youth workers on their own terms – away from the pressures of school and family.​​​​​​​  Through one-to-one sessions and targeted programmes  – such as employability and mentoring schemes – youth workers help young people to look after their mental health, develop the skills they need for the future – from communications to sexual health – and much more.

I've made friends I never would have made in the outside world and it's [Factory Youth Zone] made me realise you don't judge a book by its cover.
