Ribble Valley based Building Services company, Prometheus Group Services Ltd, has become the
newest local business to join the Youth Zone’s growing family. The company works across the whole

A decade ago, Blackburn Youth Zone embarked on a journey to change the prospects offered to all
young people within Blackburn with Darwen. In 2022, Blackburn Youth Zone celebrates ten years of
making an impact and changing the lives of thousands of young people.
On the land where, 100 years ago, Blackburn’s first electricity generating station once stood, the
Youth Zone is now powering the community through the energy and creativity of young people. In
total, over the last ten years, we have supported over 18,000 young people, had 387,625 visits
through our doors, and had a staggering 107,543 volunteering hours to support our mission.
Emma Swan, Partner and Head of Commercial Employment and Trustee of Blackburn
Youth Zone said:
“Prometheus will make a fantastic Patron for Blackburn Youth Zone. It couldn’t be more urgent to
invest in young people, with approximately half of all young people in Blackburn with Darwen living in
poverty, we must act now. On behalf of the whole Youth Zone team, volunteers, members, and board,
I would like to thank Prometheus for its support which will enable us to help improve the lives of
thousands of local young people.
Being a Patron of Youth Zone unlocks a series of opportunities that will benefit your business and
engage your employees, we want the Youth Zone vision to be embedded across Blackburn with
Darwen, focusing on your employees as valued Patrons; to ensure they feel connected to the need
and mission of the local community. A successful Environmental Social Governance agenda will
benefit your community and serve your employees. ”
Tony Pickup the Director of Prometheus said:
“We’re delighted to have become a Patron of such an inspiring local charity. The Youth Zone provides
a platform for our younger generation to succeed and excel in what they can aspire to be. Investing in
the youth of our society helps shape a bright and prosperous future. ”
