The Bristol Post explains some significant aspects of the new approach to homelessness in Bristol …
It also gives an update on the earlier work using shipping containers.
We’ve been aware that homelessness is rising across the southwest for some time, and have been supporting Bristol Royal Infirmary, GPs and groups across the southwest to support homeless patients. We’re really keen to bring together everyone working in health across the region, and reach out to more homelessness and housing groups too. We’re holding our first meeting across the region on 4 December, 1-4 at the Trinity Centre in Bristol.
It’s all free to attend (our work is funded by Lankelly Chase Foundation). All the meeting details are here: http://www.pathway.org.uk/
If you can’t come, but would like to join The Faculty for Homeless and Inclusion Health, there are details here: http://www.pathway.org.uk/

Bristol City Council is looking into a Bristol pilot of the national Feeding Britain programme, which is working towards a hunger-free United Kingdom – feeding-britain.org.
Please join us for this Open Space event if you are working in this sector in Bristol, from organisations helping people in crisis, to those involved in community food growing.
We would like to hear your ideas for and decide on activities we can take forward together for alleviating hunger, and reducing vulnerability to hunger, in our city in the months and years ahead. Event to be opened by the Mayor of Bristol,

“This special event marks the start of a series of events to mark 21 years of the Sustainable Housing & Urban Studies Unit (SHUSU) at the University of Salford. At this event we are bringing together a number of speakers from different backgrounds to share their insights, knowledge and practice related to their contribution to housing and their views on addressing homelessness.”
Ben Richardson from Caring in Bristol has put together a proposal for how this might be done ” Bristol online homelessness information ” and your views are invited.
Please post your views here and email BristolHF@gmail.com if you’re interested in getting involved; we hope to set up a meeting during May to plan the way forward.]]>
