The London Jewish Cultural Centre has won its planning appeal to build a dedicated youth facility at its Ivy House headquarters in Golders Green.
Announcing the palnning outcome this morning, the centre said the new facility would be the first 'new build' dedicated to youth in the borough of Barnet for many years.
The new facility will provide 2500 square feet; two large open spaces for dance, exercise, music etc, a youth media centre and an area for arts and crafts with disabled access at all levels.
The Sobell Foundation has already begun funding a full time youth worker at the Centre, responsible for developing and expanding LJCC youth programming.

Now more than ever the LJCC is working at the heart of the community'.
