Lift Youth Hub and Venue Hire
The former Victorian school is now a stunning youth hub and venue for hire. The building now has a 30-station gym equipped with specialist kit, meeting and training rooms, large multi-use halls, indoor and outdoor kitchens, a large dance studio and a roof top terrace with fabulous views over London.
Lift is much more than a place to take part in healthy activities. Young people can come for personal help with apprenticeships, college applications, CVs, looking for work, volunteering or developing projects. We have opportunities to develop skills and experience for employment.
Lift is also here to support with advice and guidance on personal issues, lifestyle decisions and sexual health. We have six private advice rooms including fully-equipped clinical facilities.
The hub is funded by Islington Council and through income generated by hiring out the spaces to local businesses and organisations when it is not being used by young people. Lift is managed by Isledon Arts CIC.
