Caring in Bristol

We deliver projects to reduce homelessness in Bristol

Charity Registration No. 1151645

Story

This will be the third consecutive year, a team of firefighters from Avon Fire & Rescue service has competed in the Bristol Docks Dragon Boat Festival. Having won on our previous outings, the pressure is on the team to try and defend our title for the third year.  I retired from the Brigade last year and was very grateful for my call up papers from team captain Rich Wheeler. It's great that the chosen charity for the event is once again 'Caring in Bristol'.

We are Caring in Bristol. We find gaps in Bristol's provision for those experiencing homelessness and work together with our community to create innovative projects to fill them. From prevention to emergency support, our projects range from producing free citywide resources that empower our city to act, to investing in youth support, helping influence change from the very start. Caring in Bristol has grown from the ground up with the support of thousands of caring individuals and supporters and your generous donations of money and time.
