OnSide is joining forces with the business community to open East Manchester Youth Zone. A 21st century, world-class youth centre for young people which will provide opportunities in the form of the three things they want and deserve – somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to.
The Youth Zone will be a safe and inspiring place where thousands of young people from across East Manchester can take part in up to 20 activities per night, meet new friends and find a listening ear.
Making this investment in our young people will strengthen the regeneration of 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.
Founder Patrons are key to the success of a Youth Zone. Becoming a Founder Patron of East Manchester Youth Zone is your chance to be part of the Youth Zone story and change the lives of thousands of young people.
Your support is critical to the success of East Manchester Youth Zone.
We are seeking the support of those who love Manchester and want to make a positive and on-going difference in the city, whose endorsement and generous support will encourage others to follow.
