What we do
We run various projects across Bristol and South Gloucestershire which you can find out about here. They have been designed with the help of young people, and all of them are delivered by a team of super-friendly staff and volunteers.
You can check out and sign-up directly below, but we’re always trying out ideas so new stuff starts throughout the year. To keep up to date with what’s going on, make sure you sign up to our regular e-newsletter. It’s packed with tips and tricks for looking after your mental health, as well information on the latest projects and how to get involved.
