During their stay, they will take part in a range of activities, sessions, and workshops. From high ropes and bubble football to discussing mental health and public speaking.

Week 2

The second week of the programme is non-residential, with young people will meeting each day at Ashton Gate. In this week they will give back to their community by delivering a ‘social action project’ devised by them as a team. From volunteering to campaigning and fundraising, this is their opportunity to use their initiative and make a difference.
