Barking and Dagenham Youth Zone, named by young people as ‘Future’, is a purpose-built facility for the borough’s young people aged 8 – 19, and up to 25 for those with disabilities. It is London’s first OnSide Youth Zone thanks to the support of project partners Barking and Dagenham Council, The Queen’s Trust and Jack Petchey Foundation.
Within six months of opening, Future Youth Zone recruited over 6,500 members!
It will transform young peoples lives & make such a difference in the local area.
Barking and Dagenham Council Leader Darren Rodwell
It’s two months since Future Youth Zone opened its doors to Barking and Dagenham’s young people and already we are delighted to report some incredible successes.
On Saturday 18th May, Barking & Dagenham’s brand new OnSide Youth Zone opened its doors for the first time.
