A new youth centre has been opened by the Mayor of Tower Hamlets.

The Front Line in Turin Street cost £100,000 and includes state-of-the-art facilities.

It becomes one of more than 40 youth bases in the borough providing services and opportunities for teenagers throughout the year.

The centre will offer initiatives including arts, music, the Duke of Edinburgh Awards and access to a variety of recreational activities including games consoles and a pool table.

Mr Rahman said: “Youth centres play a vital role in creating a safe environment for young people to socialise, learn and engage with positive activities.

“We have invested heavily in youth services and I am dedicated to creating further opportunities for young people to support their development.”

Kamal Haque, 16, said: “This youth centre is very close to where I live so it’s convenient as it gives us all something to do.

“There are lots of things available here as well so I’m glad we now have a local youth centre.”
