The 86 Space

What is the 86 Space?

The 86 Space is available for hire to groups looking for a bright, welcoming and versatile venue for workshops, meetings, private functions and much more!



“The 86 Space has been great for our service catering to all our differing needs. Over the long period we have used the space we have conducted 1-1 meetings, group meetings in addition to delivering courses.  Throughout our time using the 86 Space we have conducted many 1-1 meetings with service users. It’s welcoming and relaxed feel along privacy has been vital when putting clients at ease and assisting to build rapport. The facilities are of a very high standard and are exceptionally well maintained. The separate kitchen and toilet areas along main door give a sense of ownership over the area again making clients feel at home. Many clients, colleagues and partnership organisations have commented on how fantastic the space is. I have never been less than thoroughly impressed with the service, facilities and space itself offered at The 86 Space.”

Fake IDs issue among British and American youth

There is a growing problem of fake ID use among young people in Britain and USA. Fake IDs are used by underage persons to buy alcohol, tobacco and in certain states of America, even legal marijuana. Fake IDs are easy to get online, due to democratization of technology, anonymous cryptocurrency payments and globalization of world economy. Youngsters often use alcohol as an escape from everyday problems. Likewise, they want to socialize in company of their older peers and visit bars, clubs and music venues with age control policy. That's where fake identification cards come to the rescue, despite known scams. However, many students do not realize that by using a fake identification document they add felony to misdemeanor and thus can irreversibly damage their future. If you developed a drinking problem or need a legal help after being caught with false ID, The Junction Youth center can provide guidance and advice (more questions answered here).
