Young Hackney Forest Road is the biggest of the five youth hubs. There are activities here six days a week and all through the holidays – visit the What’s On to see a list of activities.
As well as offering youth clubs, arts and sports, Forest Road is the home of Young Hackney Youth Leadership programmes, including the Hackney Youth Parliament, South Forum, Hackney Get Heard and the Hackney Youth Opportunity Fund. The Police Cadets and Scouts are here on a Wednesday evening in term-time – you need to apply to join these groups, ask at reception for details.
The centre has a sports hall, chill-out room with a kitchen, an IT suite and two multi-use activity rooms. It also has a small meeting room and consulting room – which is used when we run drop-in health sessions. To get to the centre, you need to travel to Dalston Junction – the centre is a 2-minute walk from the station, the corner of Forest Road and Beechwood Road.
