What is a Youth Zone?

Basildon Council has partnered up with OnSide, to create a brand-new, multi-million pound, state-of-the-art Youth Zone. But we can't do it without you! Every Onside Youth Zone is designed especially to give young people aged 8-19, (up to 25 for those with a disability), somewhere to go, to develop new skills and interests. Activities range from dj'ing, to basketball coaching, so there's something for everyone!

Keeping young people safe

Currently, there are 14 OnSide Youth Zone's across the country. They offer young people a safe, accessible space to socialise and support each other. Plus, Youth Zones are designed to be affordable - at the moment, it costs 50p to visit, and you can get a fresh hot meal for £1.
