The UK’s largest Young Adult Centre Charity, Onside Youth Zones has chosen Forever Agency as their brand partner across the Manchester Region. Forever will support the brand and rollout for its next project in East Manchester, which has already had a £6,000,000 donation by Manchester-born Billionaire Fred Done.
The new Youth Zone is to be built on the former Gorton baths site at the corner of Hyde Road and Queensland Road with construction due to start in Spring 2019.
It will include an indoor climbing wall, 3G kick pitch, fully equipped gym, four court sports hall, a dance and drama studio, training kitchen, arts and crafts studio and much more – all available to young people for just 50p per visit.
Working alongside the business community and local organisations, the Youth Zone will also support young people into education, employment or training through employability and enterprise workshops. East Manchester Youth Zone will the latest for national charity OnSide Youth Zones, which has already created a network of ten Youth Zones across the country since it was established in 2008.
Tom Booth, Forever’s Head of Agency states;
“This isn’t about the agency’s CSR strategy or enlightened self-interests, it’s to do with my personal belief of giving people the opportunity to succeed. Without facilitating opportunity we can’t expect young adults to find and pursue their talents. When I toured Chorley’s Onside Youth Zone I was blown away with facility and the people, it was an instant decision for us to support East Manchester with our expertise in place marketing and leisure. I am extremely proud to offer Forever’s offerings and support”
Keep an eye out for the progress – we’ll be launching the brand soon.
