COVID19 Statement

As we all try to navigate the impact of Covid-19, we wanted to assure you that we are dedicated to the vital work we do at Manchester – supporting young people who need it most.

As is everyone, we are yet to see the full impact of what the current situation means for Manchester Youth Zone, however our core values continue to be the guiding principles for all of our decisions and actions:  

  • Provide a safe environment: We are following Government guidelines, and are taking our guidance from their instructions to schools
  • Be respectful of ourselves and others: We have implemented working from home where possible
  • Make positive choices in all walks of life: We’re keeping optimistic and are encouraging everyone to support each other at this unusual time.
  • Be the best we can be: Our core objectives remain the same – to support young people to be the best that they can be – whilst being sensitive to the changes around us.

Whilst the physical building itself is closed – the fantastic Youth Work team is continuing to contact individual members and families, offering support and advice and a friendly ear. In addition, we have created a Virtual Youth Zone – via our social media channels which can be found here:



These offer daily activities, challenges, and opportunities to engage as well as the option to sign up for specialist sessions and to have a Brew & a Chat. Keep an eye on our social channels for lots of great things to get involved in.

As a charity, we rely on donations to continue to be able to offer young people most at a disadvantage, our services – now and beyond the current crisis, your support is needed more than ever.

Your donation is really important, here are a few examples of what it buys.
