Yesterday, HRH Duke of Sussex officially opened our recently completed ‘Future’ Youth Zone at Barking & Dagenham.

John Roberts, Chairman of the Executive Board of OnSide Youth Zones said: “It was a pleasure to welcome HRH Duke of Sussex to Future Youth Zone to see the fantastic facility that’s been created.

“We provide state-of-the-art spaces for young people to spend their leisure time which give them somewhere safe and inspiring to make friends and engage with excellent role models.

“We are extremely grateful for the support we’ve received from local councils, businesses, philanthropists and key members of local communities without which none of this would be possible and we look forward to developing the network across the country.”

This project, being the first Onside Youth Zone in London offers a number of activities including, an indoor climbing wall, dance and drama studios, music room with recording studio, fully equipped gym, arts and crafts room, enterprise and employability suite, martial arts studio, training kitchen, outdoor 3G pitch, Skate Park and much more.

With a network of ten Youth Zones currently open in Bolton, Blackburn, Carlisle, Wigan, Manchester, Oldham, Warrington, Wolverhampton, Wirral and Chorley, this year will see the OnSide Youth Zone’s current reach of over 40,000 young people raise to 52,000 young people by the end of the year.

We were delighted to be the Main Contractor on this project in Barking and Dagenham and wish Onside Youth Zones all the best with their new state-of-the-art facility.
