The Safer off the Streets campain is aiming to raise £100,000 to fund the city's night shelters for 3 months.

Bristol Rough Sleeping Partnership (RSP) was set up by Bristol City Council in November 2015 to tackle the problem of street homelessness in the city.

St Mungo’s, The Julian Trust, Caring in Bristol and Crisis Centre Ministries are members the RSP and work together to run the city’s night shelters.

The wider partnership also includes Avon & Somerset Police and the Golden Key Programme. Night shelters are a key area of the partnership’s work which also includes Bristol Street Aware for local businesses and developing a ‘One City’ approach to tackling homelessness and rough sleeping.

The RSP charities are working together to come up with further emergency and long term solutions for homeless people who are sleeping rough in the city.
