e3creative is pleased to announce a new partnership with The Factory Youth Zone, an independent charity, working with young people throughout Manchester. Together, our vision is to inspire ambition and foster skills for a brighter future.
The Factory Youth Zone provides a unique and safe place for at-risk youth, giving them access to sport and creative activities, with roughly 1, 000 young people visiting the centre each week. Their services provide a constructive outlet for leisure activities, whilst laying the foundation for an independent and healthy lifestyle. Through exposure to new opportunities, their members develop practical skills, gain confidence and a newfound drive to succeed, easing the transition into adulthood.
Following a recent visit to The Factory Youth Zone and seeing first-hand the impact it is having in the community, especially in the lives of local families, e3creative did not hesitate to get involved - investing in people is ingrained in core values and this is the perfect outlet to further our reach. The venture is now being enthusiastically backed agency-wide, through this 3-prong approach:
The Factory Youth Zone is located in one of the most deprived areas of the UK, where the unemployment rate is more than double the national average and 56.2% of children live in poverty. Through this new partnership, we’re furthering the efforts of The Factory Youth Zone to support vulnerable youth with new opportunity and developing transferable skills.
