Last night, our corporate partner, Burges Salmon, kindly helped us to host our 2022 Annual General Meeting and Year In Review. The evening was well attended, with over 70 people joining us! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed looking through the impact we’ve had on young people and the wider community.
The evening began by hearing from Young Bristol president, Jonathan Webb. He kindly welcomed everyone and thanked them for attending. Jonathan then kindly introduced Jamie Cameron, Young Bristol chair. Jamie outlined the Young Bristol strategy 2022-25 which includes; our buildings and facilities, our people, our programmes, our influence and our partnerships. He outlined how we have been following this strategy and how we plan to follow it in the future!
Lee Williams was next to speak. He was able to talk about the release of our Impact Report 2021-22. Lee also discussed some important figures from the report; number of contacts we have had this year, number of sessions we have been able to run and how we have improved after Covid!
The Year in Review then progressed to hearing from some of the young people we work with. First of all we heard from Youth Voice, who discussed their residential. It was great to hear feedback directly from the young people that went to Germany and how other young people should take part in residentials in the future!
We then heard from Molly, a representative from the Outdoor Employment Programme, and Phil Harris. Molly was able to discuss how the Outdoor Employment Programme has been able to positively change her life around, even helping her to get her first paid job at the S.S Great Britain.
The Annual General Meeting then proceeded to discussing what we look forward to. We heard from some of the management team, who discussed their respective areas and gave a positive update on our future plans. Thank you to Andy Kimber, Lucy Saunders and Matt Donnelly for presenting!
Finally, we were able to present celebration of service awards. These were handed out as a recognition of long service to some of our amazing staff! Peaches Golding OBE CstJ handed these out to those who had given 5, 10, 15 and 20 years of service to Young Bristol! We would like to thank each and everyone one of our staff members for dedicating their time to make Young Bristol what it is today. 450 years of service has been dedicated to Young Bristol between all of the certificate winners!
