Our latest bulletin was published on June 22 with a link to an Executive Summary following the survey phase of the project and a ‘heads up’ for an online debrief session on 6th July.

Research Project

In October we announced that we were raising funds to commission a research project to help re-vision the Bristol Homeless Forum to be fit for the future of Bristol.

We have now completed the first two phases of the research programme

  • an initial round of interviews with a wide range of members and others involved in homelessness prevention,
  • a series of workshops to generate ideas about how the BHF could be more useful to members.
  • a survey open to all interested parties to gather views on the findings from the first two phases to help us understand how the city can come together better to tackle homelessness.

Throughout this process many people and organisations have expressed an interest in helping to develop Bristol Homeless Forum based on what has been learnt by the research. Invitations will be issued shortly to those people to an online debrief session at 1:30 on 6th July at which we will start the process of forming a steering group to manage that development.

Want to join the forum?

Bristol Homeless Forum is open to any individual or organisation working with the issues of people who are homeless in Bristol. While there is much attention to those who are currently street homeless or rough sleeping we recognise that this is only a small, visible part of a much wider issue which affects many more people.
