Recommissioning Our Youth Activities Offer


The Youth Activities Offer commission began on 1st April 2019 and delivers centre based youth provision, open to all, in each of the five priority neighbourhoods (Patchway, Yate, Kingswood, Staple Hill and Cadbury Heath) along with weekly sessions for young people with learning difficulties and/or disabilities and provision for LGBTQ+ young people across the area. The contract also provides additional centre based and detached youth work sessions outside of those priority neighbourhoods. The provision is currently delivered by four lead organisations:

  • Foundation for Active Community Engagement (Lot 1 – West)
  • Learning Partnership West (Lot 2 – East)
  • Creative Youth Network (Lot 3 - South)
  • Diversity Trust CIC (LBGTQ+ provision across all areas)

These organisations also sub-contract and have developed partnerships with a wide range of local providers, including town and parish councils.

This map shows the geographical areas covered by each of the lead providers.


We are now preparing for the recommissioning of the youth activities offer, working towards implementing new contracts from 1 April 2024.

The first part of the recommissioning process is to consult with young people, parents and carers, providers, councillors and town and parish councils about the current partnership model of delivery and whether it still meets the needs of young people.

The second part of the process will be to use the feedback from this public consultation and an updated needs analysis to develop the contract specification and then invite tenders from potential providers. 

How to find out more and  have your say:

The public consultation is open from Wednesday 1st June until 23rd August 2022

This consultation has now closed and we are analysing the results, which will be published here in due course.

Consultation Documents


Consultation Topic
  • Children and young people
Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
Target Audience
  • Children
  • Councillors / MPs / MEPs
  • Parent, carers and guardians
  • Town and Parish Councils
  • Young people
