Established in 2004, Griffin Park Learning Zone is a vibrant hub of learning activity.

Whether that be our intervention projects for children struggling in school, our mentoring programme for young people at risk of exclusion or our after-school clubs for young people with special needs.

Each year, Griffin Park Learning Zone engages with more than 3,000 children and young people in the local area.
