Welcome to Platform

Update on Platform 2022

Platform is a brilliant place, and the council is completely committed to providing a first-class youth offer to young people in the north of our borough.

The Council will continue to provide a youth service at Platform. They plan to enhance the current offer with additional qualified youth workers and other staff who are specialists in supporting young people. Also by working alongside young people they will create a new exciting programme based on what local young people need to get the most out of life. Find out how you can get involved in shaping the new service below!
