Bar ‘n’ Bus is a Christian charity working with young people throughout Essex.

We provide professional, community based youth and community work providing support programmes and services for young people aged 10-19.


Work includes:

  • Mobile Unit Outreach – drop-in community-based sessions using our bespoke Mobile Youth Vehicle
  • Detached Youth Work – on the street, engaging young people in the places they choose to gather
  • Targeted Youth Work Programmes – e.g. healthy relationships work, complimentary education reducing risk of exclusion, wellbeing programmes
  • In-School Mentoring – trained volunteers providing 1-2-1 to young people during the school day
