Have your say on creating an employment advice and support hub for young people at West Library

Start date 11 November 2020
End date 01 February 2021

We would like to discuss our plans for creating an employment advice and support hub for young people on the empty first floor at West Library with you.

We want to ensure that this exciting new project reflects the needs and hopes of local people and would like to involve as many of you as possible. Local residents have already been involved in helping to recruit the architects, Public Works Group, who will be taking the library plans forward with us. We are also meeting with and hearing from current users of the space and their input will be central to the plans we make.

This project is part of the council’s ‘We are Cally’ programme to create a fairer future for the Cally.

Online discussion, Monday 11 January 2020, 7.30-8.30pm

Sign-up for this event

The first floor of the West Library is currently unused. We intend to convert it into a base for our new Youth Employment Support Team which is being set up to give vulnerable young people in the area the support they need to find work and training and to fulfil their potential.

You’ll be able to hear more about the service, our ideas for the design of the space and how we plan to involve and support young people and families.

If you cannot attend this online sessions you can share your ideas through an online questionnaire and we will post updates on resident feedback in the 'Past events' section on this page after each session.

Give us your feedback

If you prefer you can collect a physical copy of the latest proposals, and feedback your ideas through the letterbox, at the Jean Stokes Community Centre.

You can contact the architects at carlotta@publicworksgroup.net or 079 2671 0660.

We plan to hold an additional online meeting on Monday 11 January 2021.

You can email any queries or comments to wearecally@islington.gov.uk
