Blenheim Chalcot & OnSide Youth Zones
This year's theme is 'Empowering the youth of today to create a better future'
Young people need our help now more than ever before. Whether it’s a lack of qualifications, or negative behaviour and attitudes, the current childhood crisis is real and well documented.
OnSide is the charity behind a network of 13 state of the art Youth Zones, located in the some of the most deprived areas of the UK. The Youth Zones are designed to give young people somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to in their leisure time; occupying their bodies and minds with fun activities, enabling them to learn new skills and helping to build their confidence and their aspirations.
Watch the below trailer to understand the impact OnSide Youth Zones are having on young people today.
OnSide has recently opened three new Youth Zones in London; Barking and Dagenham, Barnet and Croydon and well on the way to delivering a fourth in Hammersmith and Fulham. We now have over 45,000 members across the network and ambitious scaling plans to open more Youth Zones in cities and towns around the UK.
