Local business SR2 (Socially Responsible Recruitment), chose Young Bristol to be one of two of SR2’s Charity of the Years during 2020-22. At SR2 it is important to not just write a cheque, but to be as involved as possible in the charity; and Young Bristol provides multiple opportunities to do so, which results in a definite increase in staff engagement, says Chris, owner of SR2.

During 2020-22, SR2 donated over £49,000 to Young Bristol. Their staff team also volunteered at numerous Community Youth Clubs across the city, took part in fundraising events to raise much needed donations, donated vital IT equipment, and even delivered employability workshops to young people who are not in education or employment.

“Our partnership with Young Bristol feels like a good fit for us and even in the current climate, is a partnership that can grow.”

Young Bristol welcomed SR2 to the charity’s BS14 Youth Club during 2022 to unveil the ‘SR2 Media Suite’. The media suite, which has been named after the local business to recognise their incredible support, will inspire young people through the use of media activities, supporting them with CV writing, homework guidance and accessing future employment opportunities, as well as helping the young people who access the Youth Club to explore the tech industry as a career option; something that is important to SR2 and their beliefs. The media suite is fully equipped with work stations, computers, a projector and podcasting equipment, will also look to host music activities and workshops.

SR2’s partnership with Young Bristol continues to have a positive impact. Thank you, SR2!

Young Bristol’s partnership with BrisDoc Healthcare Services began in December 2019, after their staff discussed our work at their 2020/21 Community Fund meeting.

Kelly Shore at BrisDoc Healhtcare Services said,

"Young Bristol do an amazing job offering support and training to disadvantaged young people within the local area, these core values are why BrisDoc picked Young Bristol as one of their charities to support locally."

During the pandemic, BrisDoc donated over £10,000 to fund the cost of running Young Bristol’s Kayak Club, as well as to support vital improvements at two of our Community Youth Clubs. During lockdown our teams maintained a strong relationship working together on a joint project ‘Lockdown Through a Young Person’s Eyes’. The project saw young people from our Creative Programmes produce artwork to capture their experiences of lockdown. BrisDoc also supplied 100 selection boxes over the Christmas period of 2020.

During 2021, BrisDoc volunteered their time at our community venues, with 13 staff taking part in a Voluntary Day which saw them make improvements to the appearance of Ashton Vale Club for Young People, in preparation for the Youth Clubs reopening post- lockdown.

"The Voluntary Day was a first for BrisDoc, it was enjoyed by all involved!"

Bristol-based company Computershare, chose Young Bristol to be one of their designated local charities in 2021.  

Since the beginning of the partnership, Computershare have supported Young Bristol in a variety of ways, helping to raise thousands of pounds to support our work with young people. This includes Young Bristol benefitting from regular donations through the company’s corporate giving programme, ‘Change A Life’.

During 2023, more than 40 of the company’s employees set off on two wheels for their ‘On Yer Bike’ event, which involved challenging routes of 20, 30, and75 miles around Chew Valley Lake, the Mendip Hills and Cheddar Gorge. The event raised an outstanding £5,300 for Young Bristol.

Computershare have raised a further £408.86 through sales of honey produced from its on-site beehives during 2023.

"Young Bristol continues to make a significant difference to the lives of young people across the city, and we’re extremely proud to support its fantastic work.”
