What we do

Caring in Bristol deliver projects around homelessness that engage an amazing community of volunteers, bringing people together to make change happen.

We are striving to create a society where everyone has a home, has hope and is part of their community. We don’t believe that homelessness is a simple issue with a simple solution. That’s why we work across a number of projects helping people move away from the streets and preventing people becoming homeless in the first place.

Our Projects

This City Can

Housing Support Handbook

Housing Support Handbook

Our new Housing Support Handbook that Caring in Bristol has created in collaboration with CHAS Housing Advice Service and the ACFA Advice Network. It is a free resource both for people seeking support and organisations supporting people in the community.

The Sleep Out 2020

Join Bristol’s first ever ‘home edition’ Sleep Out and raise funds to provide food and shelter for somebody facing homelessness in our city. Due to Covid-19 the Bristol Homeless Forum is unable to host a mass-sleep out in the centre of Bristol, so 2020 will be a sleep out with a twist.

Cheers Drive

The Covid-19 crisis has presented Caring in Bristol with a new challenge. The traditional ways of ‘feeding-the-needy’ have become unsafe, and out of date. So, it was time for an upgrade. Introducing: Cheers Drive, the UK’s first-ever free food delivery service for the homeless.

The Common

The Common is an open access, welcoming space for young people aged 16 - 25.

The 365 Shelter

The 365 Shelter offers a safe alternative to a night on the streets for up to fifteen people who would otherwise be sleeping rough. Open seven nights a week.
