Support for Thornbury Teens and Families
Along with the rise in teenagers on the streets engaging in antisocial and risky behaviour, Thornbury's secondary schools are finding parents knocking on their doors seeking support and advice in parenting teens through this tricky phase of life. Schools don't have the funding or capacity to meet this need.
PHASE seeks to draw together sources of support already in place and create a community of organisatons & services to meet those needs - either though raising awareness of existing sources of help, signposting those in need to support services or identifying gaps and looking for ways to fll them.
The PHASE community is already networking and finding ways to work together - we currently have Thornbury Town Council, Thornbury Parenting Together, Krunch, Street Space, Jigsaw, Off the Record and Young People's Drug & Alcohol Service on board, with other organisations in the pipeline.
With government funding cuts causing schools to restructure and reduce pastoral support, PHASE will be looking at ways to support families with troubled teenagers. PHASE will soon be offering an online service to enable parents to easily access informaton and ask for advice. Future plans include parenting support drop-ins, courses and information evenings.
The board consists of young people coming together to explore issues such as internet safety, missing children, and the way services work with young people. Members can achieve a volunteering award, which can be used as part of DofE.
It allows young people to voice their opinion and make changes to things that affect the communities we live in.
We meet regularly with senior management and councillors to share our opinions and views and have a say in the development of the service. We also keep them up to date with young people’s issues.
We have young people representing each area of South Gloucestershire, aged between 13 – 19 (25 for young people with learning difficulties and/ or disabilities).

The work of StreetSpace revolves around building good relationships with young people and supporting them to overcome challenges they face to getting the most from life. Dan Potter, project leader, spends a lot of his time coordinating mentoring, or being a mentor, but there are many other parts to our work. We have a street-based youth work team, who meet young people around the town and a large number of trained volunteers who work as community mentors. Other parts of our work include the annual ‘Skate Fest’ event, drugs information workshops, sexual health advice, art groups, and signposting for support. We work closely with local schools, Town Council and community groups.
