What We Do

Creative Youth Network helps young people, no matter what their background or circumstances, to reach their own potential.

Youth Services

At Creative Youth Network, we run a variety of youth services and centres across Bristol and South Gloucestershire. Whether you're a young carer, a refugee / asylum seeker or want your voice to be heard, there's a youth session for you!

Youth Participation Strategy

Creative Youth Network’s aim is to make sure young people can express themselves and be heard, so that they can influence the decisions that affect them, within our organisation as well as wider society.

Support for artists

We provide support for emerging young artists, musicians, performers and creatives aged 16-25 years old, empowering the next generation of great artists from all backgrounds.



Creativity and Social Impact

Here you can learn about our Creative Youth Workers, a unique role that bridges the gap between youth services and creative delivery. Creative activities are transformative and provide young people with an engaging outlet, the chance to share their experiences, and discuss topics that are affecting them.
