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.
