Our service work’s in partnership with schools, colleges and key agencies to signpost young people to access appropriate provision and opportunities to improve their chances and achievements.

The BVA Youth Team took part in a fundraising activity back in the summer 2014 and raised just over £2000 to support Basingstoke Young Carers and Papyrus ( Prevention of young suicide). The team climbed the highest mountain in England with an elevation of 978 metres (3,209 ft) above sea level. The mountain is located in Lake District National Park, in Cumbria and it is part of the Southern Fells.
