What is Open Space?

At Open Space, we inspire young people to discover new activities, share their ideas, and get creative. Many of our activities take place outdoors, allowing participants to connect with the natural world. Our aim is to build confidence, foster resilience, and promote awareness of social action.

Our goals with Open Space:

  • Support the mental and emotional health of young people.
  • Offer advice and tips to manage anxiety and stress.
  • Ensure a nurturing and secure environment for all participants.
  • Boost resilience, self-confidence, and self-compassion.
  • Train young coaches and ambassadors to extend our impact.
  • Encourage the making of new friends and social connections.
  • Share the excitement of new ideas, creative expression, and exploration.

Open Space also offers FREE Wellbeing Sessions and Workshops to schools in Bath and North East Somerset.

Hear from our volunteer, Holly, who shares her experience of working with young people at Open Space:

The type of volunteering I do is with younger children, and what we usually do is some mindfulness activities in nature. The one thing I get out of volunteering is a lovely experience of helping others and getting to know other people here.
