Support for young people in Weston
We understand that the recent incident in Weston involving a young person has deeply affected the community, and our hearts go out to everyone impacted. We recognise the unique challenges that young people in the area may face during this time.
Youth Connect and our trusted partners such as DHI Project 28 and Off the Record are here to offer support and assist in connecting you with any additional help you may need. We want you to know that we are here for you.
We will be providing support in various locations including at our City Centre Youth Space (opposite the bus station), around the City Centre and in Weston Village. Our team will be identifiable as they will be wearing Youth Connect South West branded clothing and bright blue lanyards with our logo on them.
Remember, you're not alone. We are here to listen, support, and guide you through this difficult time.
Our direct support can be found in the following locations:
City Centre Youth Space (28 Southgate Street - opposite the bus station)
Bath City Centre (on the streets of Bath)
