A hub to transform the lives of young people has officially opened in the heart of Stratford.

With its new centre in The Broadway, charity Ape Media will continue its work supporting 14 to 24-year-olds in the area with training, and help young adults who want to work for themselves.

The hub, which launched on Friday October 21, boasts a recording studio and cafe. The space also hosts East London Skills which supports children from war-torn countries, and there’s still room for more.

Ape Media CEO Trevor Blackman said it was a “space for young people to pursue their dreams”.
