We’re a youth and community charity, based in Filton in the north of Bristol (just within the boundary of South Gloucestershire Council).
We have been running youth work for 70+ years as a voluntary sector centre based within a Methodist Church-owned youth centre. As of May 2014 we registered as a new charity with a new focus now on youth AND community work hiring the same premises from the church next door to us.
Our building was 50 years old in April 2017 and we held a big celebration weekend and Egg Trail! See the ’50th Anniversary’ page for all the details.
We are a local charity which aims to work with people of all ages to improve their community participation, skills and learning, health and well-being, activity and work-readiness, and enable people to come together to break down barriers between different ages and backgrounds, and improve life in the local area.
We have expanded over the past 4 years outwards from Filton and from 2017 have been delivering projects across Bristol and South Gloucestershire. Exciting times!
We are hoping to keep growing and developing as we attract wider funds and demand for our great work continues to build, to allow our great organisation to flourish into the future!
Why not come and visit us – contact us to see when would be the best time.
Our big annual events are our AGM which in 2022 will be in July (TBC) - and then our Christmas Fayre ...which was sadly cancelled in 2020... hopefully returning on 4th December 2021. (Covid restrictions dependent)
