Built by young people. Run by young people. For young people.
In 2011, a group of Young people, with the support of a local building company converted a derelict building into a functional and enjoyable space.
Over a two year period, the hard-working group of Young People built a complex that contained a leisure room, fitness suite, IT suite and function room. This site was to be utilised as a dedicated and friendly place for the young people of Wrexham to build their life and work skills.
Following the success of this venture; in 2014 The Warehouse Project transitioned from a training and employment centre to Wrexham Warehouse Project Charity. As a charity Wrexham Warehouse Project continues to offer the fantastic range of training and employment facilities and opportunities for young people with the addition of establishing a Young Person Committee. The committee of dedicated young people work alongside staff, and with the full support of the trustees and local businesses to use The Warehouse space to organise events and activities that will bring enjoyment, skill and experiences to the young people of Wrexham.
The Warehouse Project was officially opened on Friday 26th July 2013 by Keith Towler, The Children’s Commissioner for Wales who described the project as unique and exciting. The opening was also attended by Senior Representatives from Wrexham CBC, Voluntary Sector Bodies and a variety of Practitioners working with Vulnerable Young People.

It is clear that the Wrexham Warehouse project makes a real difference to the lives of the disadvantaged young people it helps. We were impressed with the way the project is run and the dedication of the staff and volunteers. By nurturing, guiding and training it helps young people develop skills and a purpose in life, allowing them to move on into employment or further education. We were delighted to award them a Smiley Bus. The Morgan foundation
