We really do value your support, no matter how big or small. You can choose to make a one-off payment whenever you wish or set up a monthly direct debit for an amount of your choosing. Your donation will go a long way to help make the dream of young people in wigan and Leigh become a reality.

‘’It also (The music room) taught me different coping mechanisms for my anxiety’’

‘’The youth zone have helped me a lot they make sure everyone gets involved and treat everyone with respect’’

 ‘’The youth zone has helped me so much through lockdown. It has helped me interact with a wide variety of activities that keep me entertained throughout the week. It has also helped me because I feel like i am not alone during this strange time. In addition the youth zone gives me time to relax and have a good time and not have to worry about school work. During lockdown I have come to appreciate the youth zone and there staff more than what I did because if the youth zone wasn’t doing an amazing job of keeping us all entertained then I don’t know what  I would have done.’’

I honestly don’t even know where to start? Wyz has changed my life in the 7 years I have been attending and throughout lockdown Wyz have been 1 in a million. I struggle a lot with mental health as does so many members out there but with the virtual youth zone, its allowed me to stay in contact, interact with people that I may never would and most importantly I have gained new skills such as photography and crafting. If I had to describe Wyz in 3 words it would be “inspirational” “Supportive” “Amazing “. Without having that “Someone to talk to, Somewhere to go” in the times it was invite only I don’t think I’d be as positive and open minded as I am right now 🙂 THANK YOU WYZ
