LIFT is Islington Council's healthy living hub for young people. Located in a converted Victorian school, the premises offer a fully equipped gym, dance and music studios, rooms for hire and a kitchen providing training in cooking and healthy eating. LIFT also provides support, guidance and training for job applications, developing projects and skills as well a wide range of regular activities.
The ground floor former school hall forms the main entrance, activity and chill out area for young people later in the afternoons but is also the reception and break out area for groups who hire rooms during the day. LIFT are committed to co production and P&S have been working with a steering group made up of management, youth workers and young people to develop ideas to improve the way the hall space works with a series of insertions that can be adjusted to suit different activities. Ideas are being investigated through image searches, building visits and physical card models of the hall.
