Hiveability – The Hive, Wirral Youth Zone

The Hive, CH41 4EA

Hiveability - The Hive, Wirral Youth Zone

Wirral Youth Zone named by young people as ‘The Hive', is a purpose-built facility for the borough's young people. For members aged 8–19 (up to age 25 for those with disabilities) Providing 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.

 

Our Ethos

At The Hive Youth Zone we believe that #everyyoungpersoncan. That’s why our ‘Hiveability’ team are dedicated to ensuring the offer of The Hive is accessible for all young people aged up to 25 with a disability. The team make sure that each and every young person who attends the Youth Zone can get involved in the activities they want to, regardless of their abilities.

 

Our Approach

The Hive Youth Zone has 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.

 

Levels of Support

If young people require additional support to access our opportunities a discussion will take place as to how this can be arranged. The Hive is not able to offer 1:1 support, but we make provision for this by allowing that young person to be supported by a parent/carer/pa etc within the Youth Zone. We must carry out a DBS check and we will work with the young person and their family to make sure this runs as smoothly as possible. This can be arranged via appointment with our Inclusion Manager Jo on: Dougy.Oliver@thehiveyouthzone.org.

 

Provision, opportunities and facilities:

The following is a list of some of the provisions we have in place that allow us to work towards our vision:

  • Structured activity sessions (open to all but also closed groups where appropriate).

  • Access to aids such as ear defenders, sensory activities and quiet spaces when needed.

  • Staff trained in approaches for behaviour and awareness.

  • Accessible toilets.

  • Hygiene Suite with tracker hoist and bed.

  • Provision of inclusive sport and leisure opportunities.

 

At The Hive Youth Zone we aim to Inspire, Invest and Include all people in all that we do as we believe that #everyyoungpersoncan.
