Become a Patron


Patrons are key to the success of a Youth Zone.

Becoming a Patron of SYZ is your chance to be part of the Youth Zone story and change the lives of thousands of young people.

Our Patrons are a group of individuals and companies united by a determination to give young people in Salford somewhere safe to go, something positive to do and someone trusted to talk to.

The annual running costs for SYZ are £1.6million, together our Patrons’ contributions combine to support 70% of these costs.

Your support will ensure that we provide a first class offer, with a foundation to develop and maintain excellent services for young people which match the exceptional facilities of the building.

Beyond the financial support, patronage provides the opportunity to directly engage with young people, invest in the community, build connections, and gain recognition.

Join us as we write a new narrative that celebrates the strengths and progress of our young people and our communities.

Together, we can provide thousands of children and young people in Salford with a chance to discover what they have got and where it could take them.
