Social Housing drop-in events

From April 2024 we will be supporting bi-monthly drop-in events for council tenants.

These drop events are in partnership with Black South West Network and other local community organisations.

The events are intended to improve accessibility to council housing services for minoritised communities.

Events will be taking place at various locations around Bristol. Find an upcoming event below and click the link to reserve a spot.
