The BID organised a one-hour workshop with the Caring in Bristol charity and the Bristol City Council streetwise team regarding homelessness. The workshop took place in Metro Bank and attendees learnt about the relationship between rough sleeping, begging and substance use, how to respond to the rise in rough sleeping as well as find the balance between compassion and pragmatism.
Drawing on the charity’s thirty years of working with people sleeping rough in the city and a wealth of evidence from across the country, Caring in Bristol delivered practical advice on how businesses in Broadmead could best manage effective interventions in street-based activity.

“As manager of an independent retailer on the edge of the BID area, I really appreciate the work the BID team does to help promote all its businesses, especially events like the annual Easter trail that encourage shoppers to explore the whole area.”
