Latest NEWS

Shortly after the start of lockdown and the opening up of hotels and hostels to accommodate rough sleepers and those in shelters the Bristol Homeless Forum has been trying to keep up to date with a weekly bulletin.

This weeks bulletin can be accessed by clicking the picture below which is intended to illustrate the theme running through this week.

Even if we are right to be optimistic about ending rough sleeping (see last week) there are still people sleeping rough now. What is there for them?

All past bulletins can be accessed in the links below.

Sleepout 2020

We will be holding a Sleepout this year – but not in a single venue.

Keep your diaries free for Friday 9th October – wake up outdoors on World Homeless Day.

More details coming soon but if your organisation is interested in joining in on this fundraising opportunity  please email sleepout.bristolhf@gmail.com to let us know.
