Wood Green Young Voices

Working in partnership alongside architects Freehaus, JA Projects and representatives from Haringey Council, a group collectively known as ‘Wood Green Young Voices’ have co-designed and co-produced many aspects and elements of this project.

Young people were nominated by local schools, community organisations and youth sector organisations to be part of the group. 

The building designs, colours, logo and name for the youth hub have all been influenced by Wood Green Young Voices and their lived experiences of Wood Green.

Jasmin, 14, from Wood Green said:

I’ve loved being part of the Wood Green Young Voices. It’s provided me with so many amazing insights into people’s views on Wood Green as well as London as a whole, and the diversity of the group ensure that all views are represented.

The group has meant a lot to me. It’s been amazing to see the youth hub grow from a mere concept into something really quite amazing and I will 10,000% be visiting :)

Naming the youth hub

Through a series of design workshops, Wood Green Young Voices shared their thoughts and creativity to produce five brilliant options for the name of the new youth hub. 

After a period of consultation, the name chosen was ‘Rising Green’. The name ‘Rising Green’ is inspired by the idea of growing up and being raised in Wood Green - ‘Made in Wood Green.’

Community engagement events

Drop-in for Wood Green residents and businesses

Staff team members involved in the development and launch of Rising Green Youth Hub spent the afternoon/evening in Wood Green facilitating a drop in for local young people, residents and businesses to find out more info about this exciting project.

It was great to meet all the community members who visited to discuss the opening of the youth hub and opportunities for young people over the summer holiday.

The photo from the drop-in event shows Alison Hackshaw, Team Manager, Haringey Youth Service and Maureen Juliana-Harvey, Wood Green Community Engagement Officer.

Residents’ meeting - Tuesday 28 June 

A meeting was held on Tuesday 28 June 2022 at Wood Green Central Library with residents and council officers to discuss updates in relation to the developments with Rising Green Youth Hub in preparation for its opening for young people this summer. 

The meeting was attended by residents and the council’s youth service, regeneration and community safety teams which resulted in productive discussions about how we need to work together as we move into the next phase of opening and operating services for young people from the youth hub.
