Bristol City Council has set up the Youth Sector Support Fund (SSF) to support Bristol-based organisations working with local children and young people. The fund, which launches on Monday 23 July, will support projects and collaborations that result in a diverse range of services for children and young people 8-19 years old and a stronger youth and play sector. This fund aims to complement Targeted Youth Services (TYS) contracts by filling gaps in services across the city.


For a detailed overview of funds available, who can apply and further information, please see this document. This will go out of date quickly so check back regularly for live updates.

The fund supports established organisations delivering services directly to beneficiaries. They are looking for services which can demonstrate a track record of success, and evidence the effectiveness of the work.
