Useful info and links

You can find links to other websites that give advice and info on a range of subjects relevant to young people. There is also a link to a blog written by and for young people. Here you’ll find inspirational stories and a way of connecting with other young people in the Bristol area.

If you’re feeling curious, you could try the intelligence test. It takes a few minutes and gives you an indication of where your strengths lie, that is whether you’re naturally musical, work well with others, enjoy learning outdoors, and a number of other things too.
