City youth centre shake-up on cards
YOUTH services in Bristol will undergo a transformation from the beginning of next month.
Services in youth centres across the city will change as part of a £22 million Youth Links scheme.
A number of council-owned youth centres and playgrounds will transfer to new consortia under the initiative.
The council believes the Youth Links scheme will create "more up-to-date, joined up" services for children and teenagers aged eight to 19 outside of school.

The services include youth groups, play services, advice and guidance to help young people volunteer and get involved in their community.
Specialist services include counselling, preventing drug and alcohol misuse, reducing teen pregnancies and supporting disabled people.
It is anticipated the newly-shaped services will be up and running from Easter.
Young people will have the opportunity to influence the new services.
City councillor Gus Hoyt, cabinet member for neighbourhoods and environment, said: "There has already been considerable interest in many of the sites available to transfer to communities or to the new consortia involved in delivering youth services.
"From April young people will start to notice the difference in their communities through Youth Links and brand new services on their doorstep such as courses, outreach services and apprenticeship schemes."
