Blaby District Council in Leicestershire have launched a mobile youth bus called BB19 with facilities so that the Youth Workers can work with young people anywhere with or without a youth centre nearby. The mobility of the team means that it can respond easily to reports of anti-social behaviour and aims to work in remote rural areas with vulnerable young people primarily aged between 11-19.BB19 Youth Bus

The purple bus will be used to take advice on sexual health, smoking, drugs, alcohol, bullying and anti-social behaviour to youngsters across Blaby district and will also be used for a range of activities including sport and support and discussions around relevant issues.

The bus is kitted out with media equipment including computers, a flat screen TV, gaming consoles and DJ equipment and it was our pleasure to install the on-board Kubota generator.
