The OPEN Youth Foundation was awarded charitable status in 2005 and exists solely to benefit young people by creating sustainable services and facilities. We are proud to be on the OPEN site, located in the centre of Norwich, which has been shortlisted for the World's Best Community Building Award. The Trust uses this venue to generate sustainable revenue streams including OPEN Conference , Live Music and CLOSED Secure Storage to deliver our youth services.
OPEN is lucky enough to have modern, state-of-the-art facilities, including various meeting rooms , space for live music and events , a climbing wall , a dance studio , a recording studio , a media lab , as well as some great partners. OPEN Conference boasts a Bank Room with a capacity for 1,450 people, 6 stunning meeting rooms and a private, state-of-the-art nightclub with state-of-the-art technology. Recently refurbished to the highest standards, each room has been individually styled, combining the grandeur of a Grade II listed building with contemporary flair. Click here for more information.

    The Prince's Trust

    We provide practical and financial support by developing key workplace skills such as confidence and motivation. We work with teenagers aged 13 to 30 who have done poorly at school, have been in care, have been unemployed for a long time or have problems with the law. Since 1976, we have helped over 600,000 young people and support another 100 every day. More than three out of four young people we helped last year have moved on to work, education or training. Around one in five young people in the UK are not in work, education or training. Youth unemployment costs the UK economy £10 million a day in lost productivity, while youth crime costs £1 billion a year.
