The Bridge

The Bridge

The Bridge is a Support Centre based in Selsey which is operated by the charity Youth Dream (Selsey) in partnership with The Academy, Selsey.

Key to the success of the Bridge is its location in the heart of the community and, critically, its ability to respond with due speed to young people in crisis, and to give support to parents.

The service is based in a building on the eastern edge of the school site, and is access through gates directly behind Selsey Library.  The building forms the hub of the operation and houses the key staff including management, a Counsellor, an Education Key Worker, an Environmental Key Worker and an administrator, together with various volunteers.  The accommodation comprises four rooms which are used for group and individual support work, counselling, education and a rather of other services.

We deliver services, including extra-curricular and leisure events and activities, across the community, as well as a full range of specialist support services to the disengaged and those most in need.
