CEO Kathryn introduces you to OnSide
OnSide is a national youth charity that believes all young people should have the opportunity to discover their passion and their purpose.
OnSide funds and builds state of the art, multi-million pound Youth Zones in the country’s most economically disadvantaged areas and trains the amazing people that run them while offering continued support. These are brand new, purpose-built spaces fizzing with energy, and crammed with incredible facilities.
They are staffed by skilled and dedicated youth workers who truly believe in young people – helping them see what they could achieve, and giving them the skills, confidence and ambition to go for it. This is life changing support that helps tens of thousands of young people from a diverse range of backgrounds to thrive.
Youth Zones are a unique partnership between young people and their community, local authorities and private business leadership, and a growing movement of supporters who believe that how we treat the next generation defines who we are as a society.
OnSide now has 14 open Youth Zones within its network, including three in London, with a number of others in development. Its fourth London Youth Zone, WEST, will open in 2023 in White City.
