Hobbycraft signs up to support HideOut Youth Zone


Hobbycraft, the UK arts and crafts retailer, has confirmed its support for inspiring the next generation of crafters by becoming a patron of HideOut Youth Zone in Manchester.

Launched in Manchester in September 2020, the £6.6 million HideOut Youth Zone has quickly earned a reputation as a sought-after safe space for local youngsters; and already has over 2000 young people signed up as members.

The charity provides an inspiring place for thousands of young people from across Manchester, aged 8 – 19 and up to 25 for those with additional needs, to enjoy their leisure time 7 days a week. The charity provides a diverse range of Youth Work activities for just £5 annual membership and 50p a visit. They include sports, dance, drama and music, gardening, hairdressing, cookery, film and digital media.

HideOut also provides a vibrant arts and crafts offer and we will be working closely with Hobbycraft to further develop this work. Over the coming year(s) the partnership will provide young people with exciting opportunities to test out new technologies, run arts & crafts takeover days, access employability and enterprise workshops and much more.

Dominic Jordan, Chief Executive at Hobbycraft said: “Hobbycraft has a strong history of supporting charities and helping to raise vital funds for those who need it most. We are proud to become patrons of HideOut and to have the opportunity to help transform the lives of young people from across Manchester. It’s a great organisation doing fantastic work”

Adam Farricker, Chief Executive of HideOut Youth Zone said: “We are delighted to welcome Hobbycraft to our family of Patrons and to have such a fantastic well-known brand supporting our vital work. The partnership with Hobbycraft will really enhance our offer and will help to improve the lives of thousands of young people and communities in the local area for years to come. We have great ambitions for the those we support and cannot do it without the incredible support from organisations such as Hobbycraft.”
