About the Organisation
“WEST” by local young people, is due to be completed at the end of 2023 and open in spring 2024 as the fourth OnSide Youth Zone in London. At WEST, we believe all young people in Hammersmith & Fulham should have the opportunity to discover their passion and their purpose. To find out what they’ve got and where it could take them. Our Youth Zone will be a purpose-built space fizzing with energy and crammed with incredible facilities. It will be staffed by skilled and dedicated youth workers who truly believe in young people in the city – helping them see what they could achieve, and giving them the skills, confidence and ambition to go for it. Once open, we will deliver life-changing support to help thousands of young people from a diverse range of backgrounds to thrive. Open 37 hours a week, 7 days a week, while schools are closed – that’s evenings and weekends, plus all through the school holidays. We will offer a safe and active space for young people to flourish in their leisure time, where their interests can be nurtured, and they can grow as Individuals. Averaging 1,000 visits per week this is a charity that the whole community can be proud of, and you can be part of that journey.
