Through the management of community spaces and commissioning of services, we create a positive community impact to some of the cities most vulnerable groups. We are an example of diversity and through responsible business practice, we make sure that we can deliver sustainable youth activity to the BAME communities of Bristol.
Values: We believe in the power of community. Through supporting our young people, residents and the community organisations in Bristol, we believe we can create a fairer and more equal city that can provide opportunities for all its people.
Full Circle @ Docklands does this by:
- Providing 20hrs of weekly open access youth service and 10 weeks annual holiday activity for the young people of St Pauls and the wider BAME communities of Bristol.
- Delivering over 30hrs per week of free to access or affordable sports clubs that are culturally appropriate and BAME led.
- Managing a key community building in St Pauls and developing a plan to deliver its services independent of grants by 2026.
