Off the Record (Bristol)

OTR Bristol Hubs

OTR Hubs are a safe and relaxed space for young people to simply drop into for a chat; no appointments needed. These sessions run every week throughout the year and offer a range of different workshops and groups throughout the week. It's the starting point to engage with all our current services.

Situation

In the current economical and funding climate, access to mental health support for young people is limited and often involves long waiting times. Young people's voices are often ignored in the process of seeking help and receiving support. We don't believe that young people are "broken" and we don't think they need an "expert" to tell them what's the right direction - instead we empower young people to make their own choices.

Solution

OTR's Hubs are the best place to find out more about what we do, particularly if young people are not sure where to start. We believe that no person in need should be turned down, and so we have developed a model in which we can provide a wide range of services to engage young people in constructive activities and support. We're empowering young people by allowing them to make their own choices around support services. The Hubs are the crucial starting point of their journey with OTR.

  • Everyone is so friendly and they really took the time to listen and help me find the right support.

  • OTR Bristol was a safe space for me to come and open up about my life. From the very start when I walked through the door and asked for help I felt very welcomed.
