BYL Specialist Services

  • Vision

  • Helping children and young people overcome barriers faced in achieving independence; building their resilience and unlocking their potential.

    Delivery Philosophy:

  • Effective, flexible, aspirational, responsive services which get support to children and young people quickly and make changes to meet emerging needs;

  • Work with BCC, neighbourhood and citywide partners, through managed, seamless pathways and common ways of working;

  • Share information to safeguard children and young people

  • Actively involve children and young people in service design, delivery, and evaluation.

  • Work collaboratively, positively and with a passion and a will to ‘make things work’ for children and young people.

In partnership with Bristol City Council


What We Will Deliver

  • Specialist ‘Level 2’ early intervention targeted support for CYP (8-19 years and up to 24 years with LDD) who are:

  • experiencing problems with their own or a parent/sibling’s drug or alcohol use (Hidden Harm);

  • seeking support to make healthy choices about sex and reduce harm;

  • experiencing emotional or mental distress;

  • at risk of becoming homeless.

    and

    Citywide positive activities programmes – weekly, monthly and residential for

  • deaf CYP aged 8-19, (up to 24 with LDD)

  • LGB&T YP aged 13-19 (up to 24 with LDD)

How We Will Deliver

  • Short-term evidence-based 1-1 interventions (usually 6-8 weeks), evaluated by children and young people to identify their ‘distance travelled’ to achieve the outcomes each CYP has identified.

  • Targeted group work

  • Training Area BYL staff to increase their skills/confidence in working with children and young people with specific issues and promote excellent communication between Area and specialist BYL teams

  • Positive activities for LGBT and deaf CYP

    Accessed through

  • professional referral e.g. learning mentor;

  • direct contact through scheduled, publicised drop-in sessions;

  • outreach.

Where We Will Deliver

  • YIPs & Choices Programme (year 11 non-attenders)

  • Locations where Area BYL play and positive activities will be delivered;

  • City centre bases offering greater privacy (i.e. the Station; Off the Record’s base (St Michael’s Hill);

  • ‘Non-formal’ settings e.g. parks, in partnership with Area BYL staff and Neighbourhood Partnerships to reduce risky/anti-social behaviour by CYP e.g. underage drinking; to promote community cohesion
