Why East Manchester?

The centre in Gorton, which would provide enriching leisure activities and support for children and young people in central and east Manchester seven days a week, would be part of the Onside Youth Zones network, which also includes the successful Manchester Youth Zone in Harpurhey.

Youth Zones provide safe, inspiring places for young people to go in their leisure time – offering creative and sporting activities, plus support for their practical, social and emotional needs to help them grow into happier, healthier adults.
