To unite young people to fulfil their full potential
Unitas Youth Zone is part of a national network of youth zones built by the charity OnSide. Named by young people as “Unitas”, Unitas Youth Zone is an independent charity, with a purpose-built facility, located on Montrose Playing Fields in Burnt Oak, near to Grahame Park and Colindale, providing a safe and inspiring place to for Barnet’s and North London’s young people aged 8-19, and up to 25 with disabilities.
We run open access Youth Work sessions, six days a week, with over 20 activities on offer every single day. For £5 a year membership and 50p a visit, young people can access our whole range of activity and support, facilitated by our team of passionate and skilled Youth Workers.
As an OnSide Youth Zone, Unitas is built on the following foundations:
Every quarter we produce a Quarterly update, highlighting events at Unitas, spotlight stories on our young people and our staff, and general updates. To view the latest Quarterly update, click here.
