Wirral Youth Zone, named by young people as ‘The Hive’, is a purpose-built facility for young people aged 8 – 19, and up to 25 for those with disabilities. Young people from across The Wirral have access to fantastic facilities for a cost of £5 for an annual membership and 50p per visit.
The Youth Zone provides a safe environment where young people can come and enjoy themselves and enables young people to raise their aspirations and confidence to create a happier and healthier generation.
- The Youth Zone provides its members with somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to. In the surrounding wards of The Hive, there are high concentrations of childhood deprivation with at least 1 in 3 children living in poverty. These areas correlate strongly with other known deprivation markers.
- Fantastic facilities at the Youth Zone include a climbing wall, boxing gym, music suite, salon, art room, rooftop football pitch and sensory room.
- Qualified youth workers support young people across a range of issues, from mental health and healthy relationship workshops to helping find work and gaining experience.
- Opportunities for young people increase when they become a member of The Hive, from sailing on Tall Ships to performing at The Royal Albert Hall, to work experience with our partner organisations to gaining a climbing qualification – the possibilities are endless.
What we do
- Mentoring and one-to-one support for young people.
- Outreach youth work in the community to engage with young people who are out on the street.
- Well-being phone calls for young people.
- Live social media events and activities.
- Dedicated ‘talktothehive’ email address which is monitored daily for any questions and requests from young people and their families.
