The WE CARE campaign has been designed to start conversations about homelessness in Bristol. We want to develop understandings of the issue locally and encourage people to think critically about stigma and stereotypes surrounding homelessness.
The campaign centres on 5 statements about homelessness, covering issues such as substance misuse, the housing market, temporary accommodation and rough sleeping figures.
We want to start a conversation with our city. If we all understand homelessness, then together we can make a real impact and change. Let’s make Bristol the city that solved homelessness.
The WE CARE campaign has been inspired and informed by our ‘Get To Know’ workshop programme, these workshops aim to help inform our city, providing crucial information about the current landscape of homelessness in Bristol. Our workshops provide a deeper insight into the issue, the systemic causes and the importance of prevention in tackling it as well as how to help people who are in crisis and currently experiencing homelessness. One of Caring in Bristol’s core values is that we learn, reflect and educate, because we believe this is key to solving homelessness in Bristol.
