Youth, play, and Bristol Youth Links


Bristol Youth Links provides high quality, safe and reliable services for children and young people aged 8 to 19 (and up to 24 for those with learning difficulties).

The council is investing over £22 million in youth and play services to ensure activities are joined up and effective. Bristol Youth Links brings together this wide range of services, such as youth groups, play services, advice and guidance, and support to help young people volunteer and get involved in their communities.
