City Office

What it is and current projects.

What is it

The City Office brings together charities and organisations to address key issues in the City, with the support of Mayor Marvin Rees. The Office won’t replace existing projects or networks, but help them get access to additional resources, such as building space.

Projects

The City Office is currently working on two projects:

  • homelessness
  • access to work experience for young people

The Office will connect and work with existing networks in these areas.

Homelessness
The City Office will work to solve Bristol’s increasing homelessness crisis, with charities and organisations who work with the homeless, such as:

The overall aim of the project is to:

  • develop a campaign to change Bristol’s attitude towards homelessness, helping make Bristol a more compassionate city with a better understanding of how people become homeless and the challenges they face
  • create 100 additional temporary beds in the City
  • develop a livelihood programme to help homeless people contribute to and feel part of the community
