The Centre was opened in 2015. It was largely funded by Hampshire County with additional funding from Ringwood Town Council and New Forest District Council.
Pupils from Ringwood School developed a business plan. They had identified that the young people of Ringwood wanted an inclusive space where they can relax, meet friends and develop social skills in a safe, comfortable, café style atmosphere. The ethos of providing an inclusive space with comfortable seating, affordable drinks and snacks, Wi-Fi and games equipment continues today.
