About Us

WEST Youth Zone is a new charity that has developed a purpose-built facility for West London’s young people aged 8 – 19, and up to 25 for those with additional needs.

The Youth Zone is part of a EdCity, a new Education hub based in White City.

This infrastructure of facilities is based upon OnSide’s 21st century Youth Zone model and young people from across Hammersmith and Fulham and beyond will have access to fantastic facilities for a cost of £5 for an annual membership and 50p per visit.

WEST Youth Zone is a brand new, purpose-built building fizzing with energy, and crammed with incredible facilities. It is staffed by skilled and dedicated youth workers who truly believe in young people – helping them see what they can achieve, and giving them the skills, confidence and ambition to go for it.

WEST offers 20 activities each night ranging from football, climbing and media to skating, DJ-ing, drama and employability training. To find out more, click here.

Creating The WEST Brand

Over 2,700 local young people had their say on what they would like Hammersmith and Fulham Youth Zone to be called. The winning brand, with 1,895 votes, was ‘WEST’.

As well as the Youth Zone’s location in London, WEST also stands for Where Everyone Sticks Together. Young people from Hammersmith and Fulham, made up of members from local partner community groups, spent several sessions working with ZAK Agency to come up with their own brand.

The group wanted the Youth Zone to represent positivity, unity and diversity. Dozens of different names, ideas and designs were narrowed down to just two, which then saw thousands of young people from across Hammersmith and Fulham vote on their favourite.

Young people of West London

Throughout the whole development of WEST Youth Zone, we will involve young people as much as possible; it is their Youth Zone. Young people’s active participation and influence in areas of brand identity, transportation, fundraising and the interior design of the Youth Zone are fundamental to our approach.
