OTR Statement to recent events in Bristol

In the wake of recent tragedies occurring across Bristol, we would like to offer our sincerest condolences to the families, friends, and communities of those we have lost.
There is no statement or post that conveys the depth of sadness that we are seeing and experiencing within our young people, and we want to acknowledge just how difficult it is to process what is going on around us now.

If you are a young person requiring space to process, explore or offload:  

  • Our hubs are open Monday (Old Market), Wednesday (Yate) and Saturday (Old Market). More information on our hubs can be found on our website (
  • We are present at Docklands on Wednesdays from 6:30-8:30 pm for any young people aged 12-16 who would like to drop in and have a chat.
  • We have links with Youth Moves, who are open Monday-Friday and offer a variety of services for young people to attend. More information can be found on their website (
  • We are speaking with schools to coordinate support within school hours. We are exploring other ways that we can link with community partners to ensure longer-term support and space for you to access.

We are here and ready to support.
