Betterdays Saturday Play Club & the Young Women’s Project to close

Unfortunately as a result of a funding cut two of our popular projects will be ending. This has not been an easy to decision to make at a time when many young people and families are facing cuts to services, however due to changes in the way Bristol City Council funds youth services we are no longer in a position to continue these projects. The table tennis and football sessions provided by Full Circle at St Pauls Academy are unaffected.

Youth services in this area previously funded by Bristol City Council have now been commissioned out to Learning Partnership West. ffi contact Learning Partnership West here:

Full Circle will continue to work with the Malcolm X Centre in providing young people’s play and activities at the Jamafrique night, Thursdays 6.30 – 9.30pm. We will be announcing details of an exciting new project we are planning for this years St Pauls Carnival…watch this space!

In the meantime we would like to thank Dee, Rhia, Lucie, Isoke and Angela for working with us over the years and good luck in the future.
