About this Event


Following the success of our 2023 study tour, NALC is delighted to announce we'll be carrying on this good practice initiative. This year, we will be exploring Yate Town Council in Avon. Participants will be able to delve into the council's youth engagement services, gain insights into its diverse portfolio management, and understand its challenges.

This unique experience promises a closer look at what makes Yate one of England's most dynamic towns. Situated in the south-west of England, Yate is located 11 miles north-east of Bristol in the county of South Gloucestershire. With a population of 21,789 (2001 census), Yate boasts a strategic location surrounded by countryside, providing easy access to Bristol and Bath by bicycle, car, or public transport. The town's rich history dates back over 1,000 years and is mentioned in the Saxon Chronicles and the Domesday Book.

What's on offer?

Participants will enjoy exclusive behind-the-scenes access to Yate Town Council, engaging with councillors and officers while visiting key sites. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Embark on a guided bus tour of Yate Town Council's youth engagement services, with insightful commentary from council staff.
  • Explore the renowned Armadillo Youth Cafe to understand how the council effectively manages this local youth hub.
  • Immerse yourself in the allure of Kingsgate Park, featuring a lake, play area, coronation bench, and outdoor gym, learning about the council's sustainable management of this vital green space.
  • Visit the Peg Hill Skate Park to witness the positive social and fitness outcomes for young individuals.
  • Gain insights into the town council's promotion of broader youth health through its oversight of the Yate Outdoor Sports Complex (YOSC).
  • Observe the URBIE youth vans in action and explore popular areas for youngsters.
  • Cap off the day with a dinner hosted by the chair of Yate Town Council at the Poole Court offices, providing an opportunity to connect with delegates from councils across England.
