Youth Moves works to enhance the well-being and life chances of young people in South Bristol aged 8-19. It focuses on creating a community where young people feel valued, and supports young people to take responsibility for their actions, make positive choices and do things for themselves.
Youth Moves’ goal is to support young people to make a successful transition to adulthood, through providing high-quality programmes and interventions. These include open-access youth club provision, one-to-one mentoring, youth participation programmes, targeted outreach and group-work, and volunteering opportunities.
Youth Moves aims to intervene early where possible and to provide long-term opportunities and pathways, working with clear evidence of need and agreed success criteria. Youth Moves is proud of being local and rooted in the community it serves.
Youth Moves is currently using funding from the Stone Family Foundation to expand its youth club offering, develop its approach to impact measurement, and support with other core costs.
