Save Our Youth Centre
We the undersigned petition the council to reconsider in demoltion Ujima House building. To ensure the continuation of one of the busiest youth clubs in Brent with positive activities and engagement to prevent young people in engaging in negative and risky behaviour. We Have over 100 young people attending Yaseen youth centre nearly every day. It will cause serious issues if these young people did not have a place to go every evening, has some of the young people who attend Yaseen Youth are really hard to reach and engage with. Our youth centre has achieved all of its targets we have been given, we have young people from all different backgrounds Male and female attend, it would be a huge loss for the community to close our youth centre down.
Yaseen Youth Centre has been on the council's asset disposal list for sometime and the current plan is for it to be demolished and turned into a block of flats
During COVID Yaseen Youth Centre was used as a vital food hub
Over a third of Brent's population is under the age of 25
Young people's mental health is at an all time low and Yaseen Youth centre have set up projects to help these youth
There are many voluntary sector groups in the local area who have expressed an interest in delivering services in the Yaseen Youth Centre and turning it into the thriving community hub it once was and still has the potential to be
