Youth Groups

BDP’s Family Team run a youth group for young people aged 5 – 16 who are living with a parent who uses alcohol or drugs. This programme lasts for a year. Please ring The Family Team on 0117 987 6009 for more information.


M32 Youth Group

The M32 Youth Group is an opportunity to get out for the evening and have some fun with other young people. We have groups for 5-10 year olds and for 11-16s, covering the whole of Bristol. All groups are held on Monday evenings, 4.45pm – 6.45pm, twice a month for 5 – 10s and monthly for 11-16s. We have dinner together and do activities including arts and crafts, outdoor play, cooking and one-to-one time if a young person wants to take some time out.

We arrange transport to get you there and take you home, either by car or minibus.


How does a Young Person get involved with the M32 group?

Please refer the Young Person to The Family Team. You can ring us on 0117 9876009 and make a referral over the phone or we can send you a referral form.

Please note, children need to be aware of the parental substance misuse to be referred to the service. 


Volunteers: Youth Group volunteers will receive seven sessions of induction training and will receive monthly supervision. Volunteers are asked to commit for a year. Check out our Volunteering Page for opportunities.
