|About||The U-Mix Centre is a £2.5 million youth facility on Lowfield Open Space, adjacent to Lowfield School between Bramall Lane, Queens Road and Asline Road in Sheffield.|
The building was made possible by a grant from the Government's Myplace initiative to fund a new generation of youth centres, and by many years of hard work and lobbying by FURD and local partners. Football Unites, Racism Divides, working together with Sheffield City Council, are the lead partner.
In order to ensure the centre met the needs of young people in Sheffield, FURD has been active in supporting Urban Mixtures, a young people's steering group.
The U-MIX Centre houses a gym, dance studio, performance area, sound studio, a rooftop terrace and a 3G synthetic football pitch which has received funding of £350,000 from the Football Foundation.
The building, designed by Kath Basilio, also has an IT suite, prayer room, one to one space, training room and information and resources centre.
