Outreach Programme

For several months now youth workers have been out on Wednesday & Friday nights walking around town working with young people ensuring their safety. One of our main aims is to encourage the young people of Bridport to come to youth club, chill out and hang out with their peers. We understand that youth club is not for everyone that's why we have started the outreach programme which has been sponsored by Dorset Council Grant. It is an essential service providing help and guidance to local teenagers. We work Wednesdays between 7:30pm and 9pm & Fridays between 7pm and 9pm patrolling the popular areas where young people congregate. We are making sure they are having a good night, keep safe & stay informed about what's on offer for young people in Bridport.

C-Card Clinic

Our Youth club is a registered C-card venue. The C-card scheme is aimed at young people between 13-24 years old who can register to get a range of free condoms, femidoms, lubes, dams and mostly invaluable information, advice and help on how to access local services. All you have to do is visit BYCC in person and have an informal, confidential consultation with a specially trained youth worker who will then give you a C-Card, condoms, lube and/or any help or advice you may need. Once you have a C-Card you can access free condoms from all our C-Card distributors.

Staff

We have a large team of dedicated youth workers who are trained in youth work, safeguarding & all hold an enhanced DBS checks.
