Now two years into its delivery and open 7 days a week, including school holidays, HideOut Youth Zone’s purpose is to help young people grow to be happy, healthy and successful adults. Our state-of-the-art £6.6 million building provides young people with somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to.
