Three contracts have been awarded to UK Youth member Creative Youth Network to provide new services for young people in Bristol.
New services were announced this month to provide targeted support to young people are set to launch in June. The new services will focus nearly £9m of funding over three years on providing a range of support for young people between the ages of 11 and 19. The funds will be used to provide targeted support for vulnerable young people in the North, East & Central and South Bristol.
Sandy Hore-Ruthven, CEO of Creative Youth Network said:
“We are really pleased to be awarded these contracts. The new targeted youth services will allow us to build on our existing work with young people and help them reach their potential. Our service includes work with many local organisations that will help us to reach young people from all communities in our city.
This will include services for young people not in education, employment or training, support with mental and physical health and help with managing relationships and behaviours. We hope to help approximately 3,700 young people a year across the city with this new service.”
