    Story

    Help Bristol’s Homeless have a proposed new site at Spring Street, given by Bristol City Council for the next 5 years. We need your help to raise funds for the development of this site. Everything from electrical work to plumbing and building. We need your help!!!

    We are also looking for corporate responsibility from brands and companies looking to support us. We already have support from the following companies: Ecotricity, Burgess Salmon, OVO, Oregon 3, Balfour Beatty, possibly EDF energy, Green heat, Barratt Homes and Cleverley Builders just to name a few.

    We are a registered charity and unlike many other homeless charities, our ethos is that housing must come first, and then everything else comes after. Many complex factors can lead to homelessness, and while it is true that these issues need to be resolved to keep people off the street, we believe that the priority must be to get people into safe, stable and comfortable accommodation. From there, we can help them to improve their own lives and reach their own potential.

    Free clothing and food can help people to survive homelessness, but it does not provide a way out. Programmes aimed at resolving complex issues such as addiction are vital, but do not solve the day-to-day problems of being homeless. We do not believe a person suffering from homelessness can make the most of these programmes or reach their own potential, when they face a daily task of finding a safe place to stay. We believe that the best way to help homeless people is to give them a secure base from which they can build their lives.

    We work with the support of our directors, staff and volunteers to build temporary accommodation, to be used by residents while they access the help they need to secure a permanent home. By providing users with the security and dignity that everyone deserves, we empower them to take an active role in improving their own situation. Our mission is to get homeless people off the street first, and then give them a helping hand in the right direction.

    It’s our mission to change the face of homelessness in Bristol and our vision is to develop a site with 15/20 containers, converted into self-contained micro flats, providing temporary accommodation until a resident can find a more permanent home. Each flat is self contained.
