Extending our reach in
Yorkshire and Humber

Brathay runs community programmes for children, young people and families across Yorkshire and Humber. For the last decade, we have been operating out of our busy Youth and Families hub in Bradford, based in buildings adjacent to Bradford Cathedral in the heart of the city centre.

From here, we deliver flexible, needs-based community programmes designed to support young people and families to make positive and sustainable life choices.

We have a trained staff team of twenty-five made up of experienced youth workers, family support key workers, counsellors and employability coaches.

Our core areas of delivery across Yorkshire and Humber are:

  • One-to-one support for individuals and families
  • Employability
  • Mental Health Support
  • Counselling and Talking Therapies
  • Youth and Community Projects
  • Environmental Citizenship

It's Brathay's ‘stickability' that makes us stand out

As a charity, we are 100% committed to placing every individual at the heart of everything we do. We know from experience that key to our long-term success is the quality of the relationships we have with young people and their families.

We focus on building a strong rapport with those we support, offering open and honest human connections built up over time. We go to huge lengths to assign the most appropriate key worker to every individual, ensuring the stability, continuity, and depth of relationship they each deserve.

Our relationships with outside agencies and mandatory services also play a huge part.

Brathay is firmly embedded within local communities across Yorkshire and Humber and it matters hugely to us that we are able to work collaboratively with the likes of Barnardo’s, Mind, NHS, Bradford Council, YMCA, schools, colleges and employers to quickly respond to an individual’s changing needs and provide the best possible shared support.
