About The Way


We’re The Way Youth Zone in Wolverhampton. We’re open 7 days a week, 365 days a year offering young people 8-19 (or up to 25 with a disability) over 20 action-packed activities every night.

Want to know more? Are you sitting comfortably? Then we’ll begin. Our story began back in 2012 when Wolverhampton City Council in partnership with local business people saw the OnSide Youth Zone model in other towns and cities and as a result wanted to give the young people of Wolverhampton access to a Youth Zone, and the benefits it can bring for the whole community.

Championed by successful entrepreneur, Steve Morgan OBE and with additional backing from the Morgan Foundation, The Queen’s Trust and St James’s Place Foundation. Find out more about our supporters here.

Unfortunately there will be NO Holiday Club for the October Half Term 2019 (28th October to 1st November) – we look forward to relaunching in February 2020.
