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.

Another point: @mrmattpeacock of @artshomelessint says in ‘Covid hotels’ during lockdowns, when arts were brought in for residents who experienced #homelessness the atmosphere improved and everyone benefited, including support staff #ImpactForum2021

What a performance! Now the panellists discuss the power of the arts, with @mrmattpeacock talking about of studies in the US that found people who experience #homelessness can find a sense of belonging and affinity through the performing arts #ImpactForum2021

We’re taking a stand against immigration rules targeting people who are homeless.

Porchlight is one of many organisations and councils who have signed @HomelessLink’s pledge to continue helping people regardless of their immigration status.

An inspiring poem from @chloedeakin. Now @mrmattpeacock of @artshomelessint talks of the importance of giving people who experience #homelessness a platform to show what they can do, not what they need, and says the arts can provide this #ImpactForum2021

Research shows that when people spend more than one third of their income on housing, homelessness levels begin to spike rapidly. This is already the norm for many cities across the country.

We need rent controls.
