About Mahdlo, Oldham Youth Zone

Mahdlo, Oldham Youth Zone stands on a generous site at the heart of the town centre, just a short walk from the bus interchange after it officially opened in March 2012.

Mahdlo is operated by a charitable body, which is governed by young people, representatives of the local business community and voluntary sector, alongside the local authority officers providing a strategic lead, and is a key element of Oldham’s community cohesion strategy.


The Youth Zone is crammed with incredible facilities that young people from Oldham can access for a cost of £5 for an annual membership and 50p per visit.  Mahdlo Youth Zone provides a safe environment where young people can come and enjoy themselves, enabling young people to raise their aspirations and confidence, to create a happier and healthier generation.


Take a look at the Youth Zones that are part of our national Network to learn more about how we are providing access to incredible spaces and exceptional youth work, delivered by outstanding people, where they are needed the most.

Each Youth Zone is an independent charity, working tirelessly to meet the needs of local young people and the community of which they are a part of.
