A Youth Zone Everyone Can Be Proud Of
Wigan Youth Zone simply wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for the support and investment from local business, the council and our local community.
The Youth Zone is the brainchild of Wigan businessmen Dave Whelan, Martin Ainscough and Bill Ainscough, who donated the costs to establish the facility. The scheme was OnSide’s first Youth Zone to be largely-funded by private sector money and occupies a striking new purpose-built accommodation at Mesnes Field in Wigan town centre.
With the backing of Wigan Council and the local business community, the Youth Zone provides a great opportunity for cross-sector partnership to raise the aspirations of the young people of Wigan.
More than just simply getting young people off the streets, it is a facility where they can be supported to achieve their dreams and develop real and achievable aspirations for their future. The Youth Zone is a credit to all of those who made it happen and continue to support the great work it does.
