The Bristol Youth Work Strategy launched at The Docklands Youth Centre on Thursday 9th September 2021, with representatives from 18 of Bristol’s city-wide youth organisations coming together to ensure high quality youth provision is available across the city for all young people.
Bristol’s Voluntary and Community Sector Youth Work Strategy 2021 – 24 is about improving services for all young people in Bristol, and is underpinned by a more collaborative approach to delivering youth services within the City.
The strategic priorities of the Bristol Youth Work Strategy have been identified by hearing from young people and wider community consultations with local grassroots, faith based, sports, young carers’, environmental, entrepreneurial and mental health services both directly and through an online survey.
Over the last year and a half we have seen youth work being more vital than ever. It is a life line for many young people and fills in gaps that many do not even realise are there. It’s essential in making sure that no young person is left behind, young people both inside and outside the school system. This strategy is so important because it’s going to bring together all of the amazing work going on in Bristol. We can’t wait to see the final results.” Alice Towle and John Wayman, Bristol’s Youth Mayors
The Bristol Youth Sector Strategy will support Young Bristol as we development our Strategy for 2021 – 2024.
