Babbasa formed in 2010 in response to the growing gap in the economic achievement of young people from some of Bristol’s most diverse and disadvantaged inner city communities.

Our name ‘Babbasa’ is an ancient African word, which means ordinary citizens or agencies coming together to act as a support bridge for those in need.

Today we are an award-winning youth organisation based in the heart of Bristol (St Paul’s), supporting under-represented young people (aged 16-30) to achieve their aspirations in education, employment and enterprise. We also support organisations to diversify their workforce and create inclusive work environments.

Babbasa is powering Bristol’s OurCity2030 initiative, in partnership with the Bristol One City Office and others, which aims to support young people from low income households, starting from inner city Bristol, to secure a median salary role by 2030.
