New Youth Centre

Through a partnership between Langdon Park School, Poplar HARCA and Poplar Boys and Girls Club a bid was put in to a government initiative called Myplace who fund ‘world-class’ youth centres.  The bid was successful and a £6 million youth centre is now scheduled to built on the Teviot Estate on the site of Langdon Park School, opposite Langdon Park DLR station (see picture).

The Canaan Project played a key role in carrying out consultation with young people for the original bid and will now continue in this capacity throughout the design stage of the project.
