6 – 13 Zone


Bradford Council has commissioned a keyworker service for vulnerable families living in Bradford & District that meet the national ‘Troubled Families’ criteria (named in Bradford: Families First) and the locally set criteria. This service is led by Barnardo’s in partnership with Brathay – J.A.M.E.S – YMCA and provides key work support through a ‘Think Family Model;’ with one worker, one family, one plan.

As part of a whole family approach there is also intensive youth support (IYS) for children and young people (age 8-13) where additional needs have been identified. This is delivered by YMCA Youth Workers in Bradford, West, East and South localities.

For more information regarding this service, please contact IYS team on 01274 307228.


Y:Zone is a project funded through BBC Children in Need to support young people aged 6-13 from disadvantaged backgrounds who are going through a family change such as a parental separation or bereavement and may suffer further disadvantage as a result.

This program can be run from school and within school. It's a group work activity with additional one to one support.

For further information regarding this, please contact Y-Zone team on 01274 307228.
