Introducing Horizon Youth Zone

Horizon Youth Zone is an exciting new development and an integral part of the Greater Grimsby Town Deal, investing in the youngest members of the community; future leaders, employers and employees. The name ‘Horizon’ was inspired by the new opportunities that the Youth Zone will provide.

OnSide’s goal is to ensure that every young person, regardless of their circumstance or background, can access first-rate facilities, alongside expert mentoring and support whenever they want or need to. Horizon Youth Zone, an independently run local charity led by interim Chair Jason Stockwood, will provide thousands of young people with the opportunities and support they need to raise their aspirations and to overcome their own barriers.

Horizon Youth Zone fully capital funded

This means that the Youth Zone, which will be run as a new local charity once opened, has secured all its construction costs, thanks to funding from the Youth Investment Fund. Focus can now turn to fundraising its annual running costs, which will come from private sector and philanthropic donations, which will  enable the charity to support Grimsby’s young people.
