Facilities for young people

Are you a young person looking for activities in Frampton Cotterell and Coalpit Heath? Or could you or your business help support youth activities in our area?

Fromeside Youth Centre offers a range of activities for different ages. During the day they hold training sessions and run an inclusion project for young people referred from their schools. On Monday there is a youth club for years 8 to 12, on Tuesday an after school club for years 7 and 8. On Wednesday and Thursday the youth workers work in the local area away from the centre itself and the centre plays host to an autism group on Thursdays. On Friday the centre is open to young people in years 8-13. For more information on this and all the other South Glos-run Youth Centres, including the Brockeridge Youth Centre, go to the Youth Unlimited website.

At the recent Safer Stronger Community Group meeting in Coalpit Heath, youth worker Charlie Williams explained some of the work being done at Fromeside Youth Centre. They have won grants for a new hard court area outside and an indoor skate park but are always looking for more support. Please contact your local Focus Team if you can help.

Claire Young has been looking into activities for young people from Coalpit Heath. Some already go to the Brockeridge Centre but it lacks capacity to extend the sessions. Claire is speaking to another venue.
