Empowering the young

Empowering young

Work has begun on the upgrade of a youth centre set up to support the wellbeing and opportunities of young people across South Yorkshire.

Sheffield based youth charity Chilypep has joined forces with building consultancy firm Fourth Wall to create a new youth centre to empower and raise the voices of children and young people across the region.

Chilypep’s current building in the Parson Cross area of Sheffield is undergoing a £1 million extension and refurbishment to expand the services the charity can offer to children and young people across South Yorkshire, along with driving forward its support to the local community with a multifunctional hall for local community and sports groups to utilise, and providing broadband to the local area. Fourth Wall has been instructed by Chilypep’s parent charity, SOAR, to deliver the project, which is not only significant to the organisation and the young people it supports but also to the local community, who will benefit from use of the extended facilities.

Construction on the building is underway, with OneSpace Interiors appointed as contractor, with completion scheduled for August 2024. In the past year, Chilypep has engaged more than 2,300 young people and distributed more than 100 grants to support its users with clothing, food, travel and wellbeing.
