South Leeds Youth Hub is a safe space for young
people in south Leeds to take part in affordable activities outside school
hours. Since the Hub began we have encouraged young people to play an active
part in our development and we ensure they continue to shape our future. It is
our desire that the Youth Hub forms part of the fabric of the local area,
involving all members of the community.
We offer opportunities to join a youth club, try
something new, develop new skills, have fun, and make friends, all in multi –
functional building and with a fantastic new 3G pitch and outdoor games area.
There is everything from a music studio,
mechanics workshop, and a performance hall to flexible spaces for creative
and performing arts, teaching and meeting rooms. All of which are accessed
through our inviting welcome area. Most of these spaces are available for
venue hire upon request.
At South Leeds Youth Hub we are lucky to work
with some brilliant local partners and supporters. Under the direction of young
people from south Leeds, we are constantly evolving and developing to make sure
that local young people have what they want, need and value.
South Leeds Youth Hub’s state of the Art building was built in 2008 with funding from the Myplace scheme, and opened its doors in 2010. It is run by Leeds City Council on behalf of local young people.
We are part of city’s Youth Offer, and our work contributes to the Children’s and Young People’s Plan for the city. The building has a range of very high spec spaces including an industry standard recording studio, a mechanics workshop, outdoor games area and more.
C63 large scale youth centres across England were funded by the Myplace scheme which covered build costs only meaning that each centre had to find ways to reach sustainability. This, and the fact that they all respond to local need, means that they all look very different, but the core features include that;
As Chair of the South Leeds Youth Hub Board,Ward Member for Middleton Park, and a local myself, I am delighted to say a big welcome to all young people, partners, supporters and friends. South Leeds Youth Hub is a great facility built through the Myplace scheme for young people from south Leeds. The Myplace scheme only paid for the building and so we have worked with a range of cross sector partners and supporters to make sure that young people have somewhere to go, something to do, and someone to talk to in their leisure time. We have come a long way but we are ambitious and keen to do more so do Contact Us if you are interested in getting involved.
