Running dates


Age range

The Hub is open to all, no matter what your age!


Our Hubs are the best place to find out more about mental health, and what we do at OTR, particularly if you are not sure where to start.

Please note that Yate Hub will not take place on the following dates: 

  • Wednesday September 28th 2022

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. 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 3.30-5.30pm @ 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.

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.

Creative Drop-In

OTR’s Creative Drop-ins, hosted at the Saturday Hub, are a great opportunity to connect with other young people aged 11-25, and try all things creative. It doesn’t matter if you don’t think you’re arty, or you’re someone who is already making art and fancy a change of scene, everyone is welcome. We often do group projects, try out different art techniques or colour and chat.

⏰ Mondays 4-7pm, Saturdays 10am-1pm
📍 The OTR Hub, 8-10 West Street, Old Market, Bristol BS2 0BH

Other helpful places

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 and here’s a list of helpful places our Membership Team have compiled.

Your rights

As a young person coming to OTR, we want you to understand the rights you have when receiving support from us. This poster talks you through your four key rights (we call them ‘the 4C’s’)
