Carlisle Youth Zone offers thousands of young people a vibrant place to meet and socialise, with state-of-the-art facilities, exciting activities and events. Now, thanks to The National Lottery, they have been able to encourage more young people from the surrounding rural areas to use the centre, by training new youth workers and staying open all week.
Thanks to the funding, local young people who previously struggled to get to the centre have also been given travel funds to help cover their costs. The new members of staff have made a huge difference to some of the young people, especially those with disabilities or learning difficulties who need extra support, making them feel very welcome.
Young people who use the Youth Zone have loved being able to try new things and have gone on to lead healthier and more positive lives.
