Hartcliffe & Withywood Ventures was set up in 1985 by a group of local people and workers who wanted to tackle the issue of youth unemployment in the area. The initial funding was from the European Social Fund. The aim was to set up small businesses and social enterprises. Several years after this the youth training and other programmes moved under the umbrella of HWV.

HWV is a “not for private profit” Company Limited by Guarantee and with Charitable Status. It is managed by a group of Directors who give their time voluntarily. HWV works with Bristol City Council but it is an entirely independent company and not owned or managed by the Council. Our purpose or reason for being is: To increase the choices and opportunities available to local people, so that they have a better quality of life and higher standard of living.
