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/training-and-events/

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/training-and-events/

The idea has now spread to the UK.

The site would be a central resource both for people at risk of or experiencing homelessness, agencies working with them, and people that wanted to volunteer, or had ideas about how to help.

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.

As prices have risen, fewer people are able to get on the housing ladder, and more are now renting privately later into their lives. Many argue we’re not building enough new homes. But is that the only problem? David Aaronovitch speaks to a panel of experts to find out and travels to Bristol to see what effect the housing crisis is having on the way people live there.
