Get to Know OTR Below and Vote for Them in The November Poll

Posted on 29 Oct 2021 by Amy Jackson
Hello, Discount Promo Codes visitors!

We’re OTR. We provide free, and self-referral mental health info and support to young people aged 11-25 across Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset. OTR isn’t just a charity providing wellbeing services, we’re a mental health social movement mobilised to support, promote and defend the mental health, rights and social position of young people.

What we do at OTR:

OTR has been going since 1965 (!!!) and has historically been known as a counselling service - but we do so much more than that! We now host loads of different wellbeing projects in different settings and styles.

We think it’s really important to offer a range of support and give you a choice and a voice in deciding what suits you best - that’s why you can now come to us for group work, one-to-one support, projects based around art, sport and nature, LGBTQ+ info and support, projects exploring ethnicity and identity, social action campaigning, and much more! You can find out more about us on our website:


The Hubs at OTR:

Our Hubs are safe and relaxed spaces where you can drop-in and have a chat (no appointment needed!)

They’re the best place to find out more about what we do at OTR, particularly if you are not sure where to start. At the Hub, you can meet our friendly team and discover more about what OTR offers, and what else is available in the area.

You’ll find they are a great place to learn about mental health and self-care too. These sessions run several times a week, throughout the year - check out our website and social media for the latest dates and times!


About the OTR website

We’ve designed our site in a really similar way to how you might expect to use a gym website (we’ve been called a ‘gym for your mind’!), where you can select the best option for you depending on how you feel. Our homepage asks the question ‘What’s going on for you?’, and from there we present you with a menu of options at OTR. If you like what you see, then you can ‘sign up’ directly to that project, and we’ll be in touch soon after!


Support OTR

All of OTR’s services for young people are free, so to help us continue doing our work, donations and fundraising events for OTR are really important.

If you’d like to donate or fundraise for OTR, you can do this in a number of ways - from JustGiving, to Facebook, to choosing us as your charity on Amazon Smile. We love to hear from people who want to donate their time, skills, or perhaps may like to host an event for us - from cake sales to skydives, we’ll support you along the way!

Donate to OTR by texting OTRBRISTOL then the amount to 70085, e.g. OTRBRISTOL 20 (for amounts between £1-20), or by visiting

We really appreciate Discount Promo Codes nominating us as part of this month's charity vote, and we would really appreciate your votes so that we can win some money to keep being creative and proactive in providing support to young people!
