The Station

Welcome back to The Station!

The Station is Bristol's Central Youth Hub. We are open to all young people and offer a place to relax, get advice and support, and explore your interests and talents.

The Station is a supportive and creative environment where you can express yourself freely. And for any problem, no matter how big or small, we're here to help.

Some of the top youth organisations in the South West are here under the same roof, giving you a wide choice of services and things to do. 

The Station is open Mon-Fri from 9am - 9pm and Sat from 9am-5pm.

Out of school? Out of a job? Out of motivation?

We know how difficult it can be to get the job you want, or even to access training, once you've been unemployed. Our job coaches are here to help. 

Are you 15-25 and not in employment, education or training, or at risk to be in the near future? 

Our one-to-one support matches you with a job coach to help you:

  • Discover where you want to be and how to get there
  • Help you with barriers you have towards getting a job or on a course 
  • Tidy up your CV and make it sparkle
  • Prepare for interviews
  • Get your dream job or training position - and keep it!

We know how hard it can be to break out of the cycle of unemployment. You may be going through a difficult time and be facing many challenges. The support we offer is catered to your needs, and no problem is too big, even homelessness, substance abuse or poor mental health - we'll support you every step of the way.
