About The Future
Barking and Dagenham Youth Zone, named by young people as ‘Future’, is a purpose-built facility for the borough’s young people aged 8 – 19, and up to 25 for those with disabilities. It will also be London’s first OnSide Youth Zone.
The Youth Zone is located on Parsloes Park where Porters Avenue meets Gale Street and is opened in May 2019.
This infrastructure of facilities is based upon OnSide Youth Zones 21st Century Youth Facility Model. It enables young people to raise their aspirations and confidence to create a happier and healthier generation.

Sarah B"The word ‘Future’ means we have a future and an aim to succeed in the future. Being a part of Barking and Dagenham’s Young People’s Development Group, makes me feel I have made adult decisions and the Youth Zone is our space, for us, and if you have a great logo, more people will come. It helps us feel confident that we’ve achieved something that we thought we could never achieve in life."
