Poppy Youth Shelter

Poppy Youth ShelterPoppy is the latest addition to the CAD youth and teenage shelters range. We have designed the park and school youth shelters for use in many situations including in school and in public parks. The teen shelters can act as an outside classroom for use in schools, as well as doubling up as a waiting shelter for parents who come to collect their children after school. Ask your local education authority about the funding for a teen youth shelter under the Safer Routes to Schools Government initiative. For added safety, all our shelters can be fitted with security lighting for use in dark winter evenings.
