Why East Manchester?

With all wards in East Manchester in the worst 20% nationally for deprivation, and parts of Ardwick and Gorton North falling into the top 100 most deprived neighbourhood areas in England – what does this mean for the young people living there?

Issues affecting young people in the area include obesity, under 18 alcohol-related hospital admissions and GCSE attainment with just 53% of Manchester’s young people failing to gain 5 GCSEs.

Open 7 days per week Manchester Youth Zone – East will provide a safe, inclusive place for young people to explore creative and sporting activities, whilst finding support for their practical, social and emotional needs to help them grow into happier, healthier adults.
