Factory Youth Zone, Manchester

The Factory Youth Zone is a charity run state of the art youth centre providing a unique safe place for young people aged 8-21 years from across Manchester. The Factory welcomes almost 1,000 young people each week and aims to provide opportunities to make constructive use of their leisure time, raise their aspirations and choose a positive, independent lifestyle.

The ward in which The Factory sits ranks second worst in England for the effect of long term deprivation on children. Many young people in the area are vulnerable to poor educational attainment and future employability and also to developing offending behaviour.

Your donated gear has enabled young people to take on new challenges and the group recently took part in a trip to Mount Snowdon in difficult weather conditions. Being a part of this type of activity helps young people to build confidence, develop important life skills and work as part of a team.
