Parent’s vision on track to become a reality

Young people from W4 Youth performed at Chiswick Flower Market on Sunday (5 February) in order to help raise awareness and money for their new youth centre. Aliché, a founder W4 Youth member, sang to the crowd and the W4 Youth dance group entertainted them with some confident and well rehearsed moves.

Sally Chacatté, founder and chair of W4 Youth, created the charity after her son was shot in the face with an air gun one afternoon after school. Her mission is to build a youth and community centre to give the young people of Chiswick and south Acton somewhere safe to go and something good to do seven days a week.

That aspiration is soon to be realised, as the charity is now in a joint venture with Ealing Council to develop the youth & community centre in Southfield Park by 2025.

W4 Youth chair ‘delighted’ to announce temporary home

Sally said:

“We were delighted to be invited along to the Chiswick Flower Market to share the news that we will have a temporary home in Southfield Recreation Ground from February 2023 and share the plans for our new youth & community building for which we’ve recently started raising money.

“We will be at a number of community events over the coming weeks and months including the Chiswick Cheese Market, a Padel Tennis tournament at Rocks Lane and an official opening of our temporary home. We’ll be partnering with Brentford FC to provide football and youth provision once our temporary home is in place.”
