Foundation for Active Community Engagement (FACE) is a registered youth & community charity based in Filton, running regular activities for people of all ages and backgrounds across the wider Bristol & South Glos areas.

Our focus is on supporting people to improve their lives and the community around them; through better skills, knowledge, opportunities, access to wider support, and making a positive difference by being 'active' in their community.

We are currently looking for reliable and passionate people to join our expanding youth work team!

See the vacancies page for more details and email to receive an application pack.

Closing date 9th April!


Looking forward to hearing from you!

Covid 19

The work of FACE is very different at the moment as all of our group session meetings are cancelled following Public Health England and government guidance on stopping the spread of Covid 19.

We are coordinating a volunteer network and shielding helpline and continue to support a few people in our local community who need extra support during lockdowns.

We continue to run a Community Store & Jigsaw Loaning scheme in our Filton foyer, which is open Mondays - Fridays 10am-12pm.

We have been providing a range of resources and outreach activities for our members throughout the past 12 months via zoom, telephone, postal activities, and some groups began social distanced 'meet ups' and youth groups from July 2020 until National lockdown again in November.

We are now working remotely, using Zoom, with a variety of groups across the week for young people from Year 3+, and for young people and adults with social or learning disabilities. Contact us if you need the zoom log-on details.

We are continuing detached and outreach youth work and 1-2-1 support with those who need it.

We expect to re-open centre-based youth provision from 19th April.

Please see the dedicated Covid19 page for more information.

Following the cessation of the pub quiz nights we enjoyed so much, we have run 3 successful online quiz nights in July, September and December 2020!
