Hey! Welcome to our website for Bristol kids

Here you’ll find lots of fun stuff to help you learn about Bristol as well as stories, art tips, P.E, competitions and ways for you to get involved.

Lots of the city might be closed, but we are open! And adding new stuff all the time, so come back again, soon.

We want every child and young person in Bristol to feel safe and be healthy, to have the chance to explore and be curious, and to learn, play and thrive with a positive future to look forward to. #WeAreBristolKids is about making sure we consider children and young people in everything we do and plan, for the future of our city.

This is our Childrens Charter. If any organisation would like to sign up to this charter, please contact childrens.charter@bristol.gov.uk

Share your views with us

We want to know how young people feel about belonging in Bristol, in particular about where you live, your school and your family. Your views will feed into the new Belonging Strategy which will determine and change youth services in the city.

Children and Young People Survey

We also need the views of parents and carers of children up to five years old. We want to know how you and your child feel about belonging in Bristol. Your feedback will influence the Belonging Strategy for children and families across the city.
