At Inspire Chorley Youth Zone, we help thousands of children and young people who call Chorley home.
Open when schools are closed, we provide an inspirational environment for our 5,000 young members and for some, a critical lifeline.
More than a ‘youth club’ Inspire Youth Zone provides an opportunity to make new friends, enjoy a nutritious hot meal and escape the pressures of normal life to focus on what makes them happy.
Providing over 100 activities each week for all young people, regardless of ability or disability, we’re sharing skills, building confidence and creating positive experiences. Resulting in both happier, safer and healthier young people and a community the whole of Chorley can be proud of.
But we need your help to continue…
To keep our doors open 40 hours a week, 7 days a week it costs £1.1 million every year and with less than 10% of this coming from statutory funding, we’re urging the business community to join us and stand up for Chorley’s next generation.
A monthly donation from your business will help inspire, nurture and keep safe thousands of young people who call Chorley home. From funding hot healthy meals to ensuring young people always have someone to talk too, your gift can help transform young people lives. Click here to find out more.
