21st century youth provision
The Northwest is in dire need of more and better facilities for young people to go to in their leisure time. When asked, young people have made the modest request that they would like:
- Somewhere to go
- Something to do
- Someone to talk to
OnSide is in the business turning this request into a reality by offering youth provision that is reflective of the needs of young people in the 21st Century.
How are we going to do this?
OnSide has developed the Youth Zone Model. A Youth Zone is a working name for a type of world-class centre for young people, which OnSide recommends as a flagship facility for every town and city.
The model is is based on the success of Bolton Lads and Girls Club, which is used by over 3000 children and young people every week. BLGC is a safe modern place, where young people feel welcome, can meet their friends and be themselves.
Over the next few years, our aim is to build as many new modern iconic Youth Zones as we can.
