What do we offer?
Youth Connect South West provides a range of services for young people, from positive activities and advice through to individual support for those who need it the most for moving on into adulthood and work or training.
We also provide targeted individual work for young people who are vulnerable for difference reasons such as anxiety, low self esteem, anger management, school exclusion, at risk of becoming NEET (not in Education, Employment or Training) or being NEET.
We can offer additional support to those who may need help getting into training, education or employment. This is provided by engagement workers who can help with information about their next steps to College, alternative education or training providers, apprenticeships or paid employment. This work is carried out in Schools, Colleges and drop-in sessions at the Council One Stop Shops.
Youth Connect South West run Southside Youth hub which has a community cafe and soft play area for under 10's. This is free to use, we just ask that you buy something from the cafe. There are also a number of regular groups for all ages.
We also offer room and facility hire, including the soft play for party bookings and a Sensory room, and will soon be launching our Community Library.
