About us

Myplace is a network of state-of-the-art youth Centres

Myplace Centres serve disadvantaged communities by providing world class services that support and engage young people.

No two Myplace Centres are the same because each Centre has been designed to meet the needs of local people. But each Myplace Centre is committed to helping young people to develop the skills, knowledge and capabilities that they need to become independent, mature citizens and responsible members of their communities. A voluntary code of practice sets out the principles which unite Myplace Centres. 

Myplace Network Limited is a not-for-profit company formed by Myplace Centres to help Centres to work together collaboratively and so better serve young people and their communities.

An Advisory Board of network members advises and informs Myplace Network Limited's activities.

Myplace Network Limited is chaired by Heather Fawbert from Myplace Chesterfield.  The company's other board members are Helal Ahmed (Tower Hamlets) and Ian Cruise-Taylor (Walsall).  For further information about Myplace Network Limited please contact Heather at projectmanager@fair-play.co.uk.

"I have seen first hand what Myplace centres can offer and have been hugely impressed
by the passion of the staff and the very high quality of the facilities. Myplace Centres
show what is possible when young people are closely involved right from the start. They
should remain a beacon of innovation within the local communities they serve and
provide inspiration for private, voluntary, and public sector engagement in the years to 
Edward Timpson.  Parliamentary Under Secretary of State (Children and Families)

"From the first day I arrived here I fell in love with the place.  I spend more time here
than I do my real home.  It's still exciting walking in every day. Being here has helped me
see where I want my life to go....  I have one word to sum  up my time here and that word
is simply 'inspiring'."
