Over the past 18 months Youth Connect (formally an in house BANES council service) has been in the process of developing a Staff Mutual which saw them spin out of the Council as an independent charity- Youth Connect South West- from November 2019! Preserving youth services for BANES and beyond. Current referrals are not affected by this change.
"Whilst working through these changes the service must be commended for their continued commitment to supporting vulnerable young people and their pragmatism in overcoming uncertainty and unprecedented change."
