Posted 11.06.2012

Signs Express (Wembley & Herts Central) were delighted to assist Islington Council with a striking and attractive sign to launch a new youth hub in White Lion street N1.

The state-of-the-art building - formerly home of the White Lion Youth Centre - offers a wide range of services and activities for young people aged 13-19, with an emphasis on healthy living. 

Installation of the sign took place in time for a launch weekend of activities called Lift Off! coinciding with the Jubilee bank holiday and half term school holidays.  Visitors to Lift Off! had the chance to develop their circus skills with Funk da Cirque, take a free dance class with ZooNation, have a health check, screen print their own bag or t-shirt with All Change artists, learn about healthy cooking, try out some football skills with Arsenal in the Community and listen to music being played on The Big Dance Bus.

By using a fabricated aluminium tray sign fixed directly to the building, colourful graphics depicting the Lift logo take pride of place.

Islington Council's executive member for children and young people, Cllr Richard Watts, said: "We're on the side of young people in Islington and want to help give them the best start in life.  That's why we've protected funding for our youth services despite the Government's cuts.”

"Lift offers young people the chance to try out lots of different classes and activities in an inspiring new building with first rate facilities.  Investment in world class youth hubs like this one and Platform in the north of the borough means young people have safe, exciting places to spend time and also use important services.”

A gym, professional kitchen, dance and exercise studios, healthy cafe and roof garden for growing food are just some of the facilities on offer for young people at Lift aimed at promoting health and wellbeing.  In addition, a range of other services including sexual health advice, counselling, internet access and careers advice are also provided.

Although the youth hub has been open for use since February this year, the celebrations will mark the announcement of its new name.
