Get to know us

A little bit of background goes a long way!

Our story began back in 2012 when Wolverhampton City Council in partnership with local businesses teamed up with Onside to provide 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 CBE, The Queen’s Trust and St James’s Place Foundation, this once-in-a-lifetime project is now a reality for the city’s young people since January 2016. 

Ever since then we’ve been offering young people aged 8-18 years over 20 activities every night.

Helping Wolverhampton’s young people to discover their passion and their purpose.

We do this by giving young people from diverse backgrounds access to incredible facilities in a vibrant, purpose-built space packed with engaging activities, and the opportunity to make friends, develop new skills, unlock their potential and have fun. Beyond the amazing building, our greatest strength is our team of dedicated and caring youth workers – who are there for young people every day of the week, however they need them. Whether through a conversation, a project, a game or targeted support, Youth Zone provides life-changing support that helps local young people to thrive.
