Our Hubs are the best place to find out more about what we do, particularly if you are not sure where to start.
OTR’s Hubs are a safe and relaxed space you can simply drop into for a chat; no appointments needed. They are there for you to meet our team and discover more about what we offer. You’ll find they are a great place to learn about mental health and self-care too.
These sessions run every week throughout the year, but there are other Hubs that pop-up across Bristol and South Gloucestershire at different times and venues time. Keep an eye on this page, or sign up to the OTR E-Newsletter for the latest on when and where these are.
Mondays 4pm – 7pm @ 8-10 West Street, Old Market, Bristol, BS2 0BH
Wednesdays 4-6pm @ Armadillo, Station Road, Yate BS37 4FW
Saturdays 10am – 1pm @ 8-10 West Street, Old Market, Bristol, BS2 0BH
What can I expect?
When you come along to one of our Hubs the first thing you can expect is a warm welcome.
Each Hub is run by our friendly team of Peer Navigators (trained young people), Engagement Workers and Social Workers, who are always on hand to have a natter about our services and help you sign up. If you’d like a private chat away from the Hub to figure out what the best option might be, that’s ok too.
The aim of the Hub is to make accessing OTR as easy and worry free as possible. You can meet us before deciding whether you want to access some support, and you can explore all the different projects we offer in more detail to find the right one for you. You can even just drop-in and browse our online self-help resources if you’d prefer.
But that’s not all!
Our Hubs also offer a range of different workshops and groups throughout the week. On Monday we run ‘Mini Mondays’ – little taster sessions of the other OTR projects where you can find out what the groups are like, meet the teams involved and ask them any questions you might have.
And at the start of the weekend, we have Self-Care Saturdays! Kick off your weekend by learning new skills and gathering new tools to look after your mental health and wellbeing.
Keep an eye on our social media for the latest workshops.
Whatever your reason for coming, whether you’re a little worried about something that’s going on in your life or you just fancy a chat and some space, OTR is here for you.
Not your thing?
While we try to offer the most diverse range of services possible here at OTR, we recognise that there’s a whole bunch of other awesome agencies and charities out there who can provide more specialist support than we’re able to. If you want some info or guidance on specific issues, here are some useful links to try.
