Location

Situation

There are a little or no facilities which cater for the potential beneficiaries during the dark winter evenings and / or bad weather, as almost all skate parks are outdoors. To quote form North Tyneside's Children and young Peoples plan "every survey completed with children and young people in recent years highlighted things to do and places to go to be their number one issue. Young People are the streets to socialise which can be seen and sometimes is anti social behaviour.

Solution

We will provide a safe, secure and inviting building which will allow young people to be involved in planning, delivering and evaluating a range of activities of their choosing. The facility will be open 7 days a week all the year round.
