In 2019, Fuller’s committed to investing £150,000 into a new youth zone in the Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. The project is being delivered by national charity, OnSide, which operates 14 youth zones across the UK. Based in White City, Hammersmith and Fulham Youth Zone will be part of an innovative education hub, known as EdCity.
Named WEST (standing for ‘Where Everyone Sticks Together’) by local young people, it will be open to young people from across Hammersmith and Fulham. They will have access to all the fantastic facilities for a cost of £5 for an annual membership and 50p per visit.
The WEST youth zone will be a brand new, purpose-built building buzzing with energy and crammed with incredible facilities. It will be staffed by skilled and dedicated youth workers who truly believe in young people – helping them see what they can achieve, and giving them the skills, confidence and ambition to go for it.
Fuller’s is committed to a long-term relationship with the WEST Youth Zone and is looking at further opportunities to support it through volunteering, career opportunities and hospitality skills training.
