The new Warrington Youth Zone
As one of the founder patrons of Warrington Youth Zone, Sellafield Ltd is delighted to see building work starting on a state-of-the-art facility in the centre of Warrington that’s due to open in 2022.
The facility will provide young people across the town with a safe and inspiring place to spend leisure time away from the pressures of home and school.
Jamie Reed, Head of Corporate Affairs, Sellafield Ltd said:
The youth zone will be an amazing facility, providing young people with a place to enjoy a range of activities while also being given much needed support.
We are delighted to see construction work getting underway, and look forward to seeing the outcomes it will achieve in years to come.

The youth zone will ensure that every young person in Warrington, regardless of their circumstance or background, can access first-rate facilities alongside expert mentoring and employability programmes; levelling the playing field and tackling specific issues that might otherwise hold back our young people.
With help from local partners like ourselves, the building will transform the lives of young people in the area with the aim of making them happier, healthier and better equipped with the skills they need to forge their own positive futures.
Warrington Youth Zone CEO, Dave McNicholl said:
I’m extremely grateful to our partners, including Sellafield Ltd for what they are helping create – it will transform and enhance the lives of thousands of young people in Warrington.
Our incredible universal offer will provide so many opportunities alongside a network of support, that young people need now more than ever.
