Why Wolverhampton?

  • Wolverhampton is one of the most deprived areas of the West Midlands
  • Over 50% of local areas within our city are amongst the most deprived in England
  • The city has 32,000 10-19 year olds

Why we love The Way!


This infrastructure of facilities is based ​​​​​​​upon our 21st Century Youth Facility Model and young people from across Wolverhampton will have access to all these fantastic facilities for a cost of £5 for an annual membership and 50p per visit.  The Youth Zone will provide a safe environment where young people can come and enjoy themselves and will enable young people to raise their aspirations and confidence to create a happier and healthier generation.
