Chorley Community Housing (CCH) has become our newest founder patron.

Chorley Community Housing manages over 3,000 homes across the Borough and this month is celebrating 10 years since the stock transfer was agreed with Chorley Borough Council.

Our new Youth Zone, named ‘Inspire’, will be a place where young people can reach their full potential, grow their dreams and achieve their goals. The Youth Zone will offer a wide range of activities for young people aged between eight and 19, up to 25 for those with a disability, including; dance, sport, music, media, employability and mentoring programmes. Inspire will cost young people just 50p per visit.

Suzanne Bullock, Assistant Director of Housing Services said: “We are absolutely delighted to be supporting Chorley Youth Zone and the young people of Chorley.  In addition to the amazing facilities that will be available for our young people this great facility is an investment into their future and we are so pleased to become one of the Founder Patron’s.”

Janine Blythe, Chief Executive at Chorley Youth Zone said: “A big thanks to Chorley Community Housing. Without the support of our growing family of Founder Patrons, Inspire Youth Zone cannot become a reality for Chorley’s young people.”

Now that demolition of the Leigh Arms pub is complete, work is starting on the foundations followed by erection of the steel frame of the Youth Zone. The Youth Zone is scheduled to open in spring 2018.

Becoming a Founder Patron of Inspire Youth Zone is a chance for the local businesses and philanthropists to create a legacy for the future of Chorley. Their support and endorsement of the project will serve to encourage others to invest in the future of the town’s young people.
