Putting Young People First

Future belongs to the young people of Barking & Dagenham and young people have been involved in our development from the start. Our Young People’s Development Group were integral in the planning of Future Youth Zone and were involved in every single stage, from coming up with the name to interviewing staff.

Young people actively participate and influence Futures brand identity, fundraising and the interior design of the Youth Zone and this is fundamental to our approach.

Young people’s voices are still at the heart of the Youth Zone and continue to help us shape their Youth Zone.
