Young people - Ask Us

The Ask Us project can help you if you’re aged 16 – 25 and live, work, study or have family in Bristol City Council area (check here).

Ask Us drop in, every Thursday 2pm – 4pm

Bristol Youth MAPS, Nelson Drake House, Nelson Street BS1 2JT

We help 16-25 year olds to get advice in any of these areas:

  • Debt
  • Housing
  • Homelessness
  • Employment
  • Discrimination
  • Welfare Benefits
  • Health & Support Services
  • Immigration

We will help you get the advice you need to sort out immediate problems and then work with you to build coping strategies and a plan to avoid crises in the future. We aren’t here to tell you what to do, we work with you to get you to where you need to be.

If you would like help either come to the drop in or fill in the Contact Us form. 

 

The Ask Us partnership

Ask us is a partnership between Bristol Law Centre, 1625ip, and Bristol Citizens Advice. We work to help you access local services, understand your rights and work towards independence.​ We’re here to help young people and it’s important that young people have a say in what we do and how we do it.
