About us

Every young person in Oldham deserves the best start in life. Mahdlo Youth Zone opens the door to opportunity, inspiring our members to reach their potential whatever that may be.

We are committed to delivering exceptional youth work. At Mahdlo the possibilities are endless, from dunking hoops to dropping beats, climbing walls to cooking meals, performing arts to nail art. For just 50p per visit, we provide a safe space for our members to use their boundless imagination; 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year – we’re here to give young people the opportunity to experience and achieve.

Make a difference with a double donation

Friday the 17th March marks 11 years since Mahdlo Youth Zone first opened its doors to young people across Oldham.

Throughout March, join us as we celebrate our 11th birthday. With a 26-mile run by Police Sergeant Damieon Hartley-Pickles, parties for our members and a highly anticipated Yellow and Grey day that’s sure to paint the town...well, yellow and grey!

We rely on funding from businesses and the local community to continually provide somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to. Without the generosity of Oldham, we would not have been able to support its young people for so long.

Throughout February and March, we would like to invite you to, if you’re able, to donate to Mahdlo Youth Zone so that we can keep our doors open to all young people aged 8 - 19 (up to 25 if the young person has a disability) for another year.

Any donation you make during this campaign will be matched, doubling your contribution to Mahdlo.

If you would like to celebrate our birthday with a fundraiser of your own, you can use the link to set up your fundraising page!

Our updates

Wow, almost £16,500 raised already, that's 65% of our £25,000 target!

AND we've still got a month to go! Thank you to everyone who's donated so far. Did you know that even a £5 donation helps young people? It could pay for a membership, so a young person who's never been before can come to Mahdlo, or five free hot meals, to support families who are choosing between heating and eating.

Your support, now more than ever, is invaluable. Thank you.
