All young people have skills and talents, but not every young person has the opportunity

Warrington Youth Zone (WYZ) are proud to have the support of Nichols plc, producer of iconic drink Vimto, as a Founder Patron and are delighted to have been approached by their IT Team, to undertake the awe-inspiring and gruelling National 3 Peaks Challenge to raise much-needed funds to support local young people.

Undeterred by wintery blizzards, night climbs, and little sleep in the minibus, the intrepid crew are joining forces with WYZ Board members and staff to tackle the 23-mile route in 24 hours and cover a driving distance of 462 miles.

WYZ is an innovative, state-of-the-art, youth facility located right in the town centre, open 365 days of the year for young people from all backgrounds, aged 7 to 19 (up to 25 with additional needs). Offering a minimum of 20 different activities on every session people, in facilities such as a full-size sports hall, climbing wall, performing arts studio, health and fitness suite, film and multi-media room, sound recording studio, and a football pitch on the roof, WYZ offers young people somewhere safe and inspiring to go, something positive and enriching to do, and crucially someone trusted they can talk to.

Added to this are a wide range of targeted programmes for the town's more vulnerable members helping them to boost their resilience, gain coping skills, and access support when it's most needed.

Having opened in July 2022, WYZ has already gained 7,140 members, almost 1 in 4 of all eligible young people in the town, and of which 72% live in the most deprived areas, and has already achieved some considerable milestones:

75% of members now feel less isolated

425 food hampers delivered to struggling families facing hardship for Christmas 2022

51% feel more confident to exercise in front of other people

Over 2,000 free hot meals given to young people

81% of young people now feel better prepared for the future

Your support will ensure that the doors of the Youth Zone can open, day after day, and enable young people to develop their emotional and physical wellbeing, make new friends, and ultimately unlock their potential.
