Full Description of Organisation

Off the Record Bath and North East Somerset (OTR) improves the emotional health and wellbeing of young people. We want every young person in Bath and North East Somerset and beyond to be emotionally healthy, confident and empowered in themselves.


We provide a range of free services including counselling, listening support, youth participation, advocacy and specialist groups, support for care leavers and a LGBT+ focused youth group.


Whilst we share a name with other Off the Record charities across the UK, we are a completely independent charity established in 1994, then merging with Off the Record Wansdyke in 1998 to cover the whole of Bath and North East Somerset and beyond.


In 2018 we worked with 2,508 young people.  The core outcomes of our work were improvements in young people's communication, confidence, resilience, aspirations and determination, and the prevention of future mental health problems. 99% of young people said they’d recommend us to a friend.
