Tackling street homelessness
Bristol is experiencing a rise in homelessness with the city having a significant gap between demand and supply of suitable accommodation for homeless people and families. The aim is to eliminate or significantly reduce involuntary rough sleeping in Bristol within 12 months, whilst ensuring that the quality of accommodation provided. Bristol’s new City Office will develop a strategic plan in the coming months, aimed
at increasing the supply of accommodation at all levels, which is appropriate to immediate needs, and also considers longer term housing.
