“At The Zone, every young person matters.
Our commitment is to offer new and exciting experiences and opportunities by inspiring and empowering young people to learn and develop within an atmosphere of Jewish culture.”
As we continue to provide support & services, costs have increased and continue to rise.
We are making this appeal directly to you as we have lost a significant proportion of our income due to our planned fundraising events being cancelled for the foreseeable future. This has created a large void in our expected revenue.
We urgently need your support.
Young people are watching society disintegrate around them with a new virtual way of life becoming the norm. We are responding by continually adapting to meet the ever-changing needs of young people and their families. We know that Coronavirus will affect children and young people's mental health, social ability and cultural development way beyond this pandemic crisis.
Existing issues have not gone away, some have only been exacerbated by the current situation.
These include domestic abuse, bereavement, family pressures, self-harm, eating disorders, confidence problems, anxiety, stress, addictions, bullying and more. We have been told by young people that it is invaluable for them to have a contact outside their families and friends.
With your help, every penny donated will ensure that we can continue to deliver our much needed Youth Services.
Please help us by making a donation to The Zone.
By investing in youth, you are investing wisely, for they are the future.
All donations will be gratefully received, we thank you for your support.
Please stay safe.
The Zone Team
During these unprecedented times:
After much deliberation and in line with government guidelines we have taken professional advice.
The Zone is closed to the public until further notice.
We will still be running sessions online for different year groups and look forward to seeing you all there! You can find information about the sessions we’re running either by email or on our Facebook & Instagram pages.
Please stay healthy during this time

WELCOME TO THE ZONE.
A second home for many of our Jewish Community and Campus Youth.
The Zone is a centre offering a diverse range of activities, projects and events.
The Zone is a place of happiness, hope, opportunity and aspiration.
It’s a centre that engages young people from an early age, encourages them with new hobbies and skills learning opportunities and where those young people come back when they are older, during their university years to help mentor the young members.
We believe a good youth centre sets a child-free; free from the constraints of some home-life and school rules. It’s a place where young people can open up their minds and hearts and where they are understood.
Good citizenship is promoted in all areas of club life. Every child matters at The Zone, irrespective of physical, mental ability or additional needs.
As our doors open, all social, economic and religious barriers are broken down creating a harmonious, cohesive community of youth.
Site Manager Nigel is embarking on an epic challenge to raise money for The Zone. He will be taking on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks, 3 Times in 3 Days!
He’s looking for people to join him for parts of the walk to spur him on and keep him motivated. If you are up for the challenge, please contact The Zone office and we can put you in touch with Nigel.
We are delighted to introduce “Daniel’s Story Time”.
Daniel has been narrating and editing children’s stories at The Zone for the past 5 years. He initially started recording stories for visually impaired children to listen to and for visually impaired parents to play to their children. However, all children love these stories so we thought we’d post some on here for you to check out.
Daniel has Asperger Syndrome and has learnt how to record and edit shows at The Zone. He tells us that his studio session here is the highlight of his week.
Remembering All Faiths
Prior to Armistice Day, Zone members of different faiths took part in a project funded by The Interfaith Youth Trust to honour the bravery of ALL soldiers from ALL faiths in memory of their sacrifice. Our young people researched the first world war, created an information display and created the video above.
