Have your say on the future of the YAC
Southall, UB1 3HJ United Kingdom
The Young Adult Centre (YAC) in Southall is one of just three purpose-built youth centres in Ealing and serves many of the most deprived and marginalised communities in the borough. Owing to cuts from central government, the Council has had to take the difficult decision to shut down the centre at the end of October.
The Young Ealing Foundation is hoping to work with the council to try and negotiate a way to keep it open. We might be able to, by renting it from them and offering its facilities to a diverse range of providers working with children and young people.
The Young Ealing Foundation cannot do this alone. We are hosting a consultation event on Tuesday 3rd September 2019 alongside the Southall Community Alliance for local stakeholders where you can see the space, make suggestions for how to utilise and market it, and to pledge your support in a range of ways. This could include pledging to deliver activities there, supporting the fundraising campaign and joining the management committee.
Help us build a picture of what the future of the YAC could look like if it were to stay open.
