About Organisation

UP in BCP is a service for children and young people provided by BCP Council.

UP has been formed to ensure that children and young people (aged 12-19 or up to 25 if they have a SEN or disability) in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole are supported and have the information, advice and guidance to make informed decisions. Whether it’s your future, things to do, health or finding your voice – we are here to help.

Whether it is the need for specific information or the need to talk to someone confidentially, UP is here for you!

Youth Access Points

UP in BCP currently operate three Youth Access Points across the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (BCP) area, offering extensive and diverse forms of support and guidance.
