Wigan Youth Zone

We are Wigan Youth Zone, a state of the art youth club facility located at the heart of Wigan for young people aged 8 - 19 (or 25 with additional needs).

What is Wigan Youth Zone?

Wigan Youth Zone is a purpose-built, state-of-the-art youth facility in Wigan town centre which opened in June 2013. It offers young people from across Wigan the opportunity to meet friends, have new experiences, learn new skills and access the support they need to develop and achieve their potential.

The Youth Zone is open to all young people across Wigan aged from 8 to 19 (up to 25 with additional needs), striving to offer something for everyone, regardless of their interests or abilities. With almost 15 dedicated areas to choose from including our four 40-metre floodlit football pitches, art room, music room and climbing wall – there’s something for everyone here at Wigan Youth Zone.

Our aim is simple, to provide the town’s young people with somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to.

What does Wigan Youth Zone offer? 

Our activities within Wigan Youth Zone and out in the community have been enjoyed more than half a million times by young people across Wigan and Leigh.

Members with Additional Needs 

At Wigan Youth Zone we believe that #everyyoungpersoncan. That’s why our inclusion team are dedicated to providing support for all young people at the Youth Zone. The team make sure that every young person who attends the youth zone can get involved in the activities they want to, regardless of their abilities.

Wigan Youth Zone have developed a model of working that takes into consideration any barriers that may prevent young people from joining in with activities and working to remove those barriers wherever possible. We believe this approach should be inclusive of all abilities yet specific enough to cater for each individual.

If young people require additional support to access our opportunities, a discussion will take place as to how this can be arranged.

WYZ is not able to offer 1:1 support, but we make provision for this by allowing that young person to be supported by a personal assistant or carer within the Youth Zone, and make sure those supporting a young person to attend the Youth Zone has signed our PA agreement. We ask that they provide a current full DBS to enable them to do this and they follow the guidelines we have set in place for those adults who are supporting young people on premises.
