Helping Christians Respond To Social Needs

Bristol Homeless Forum
Feeding the Homeless in Bristol - Draft Agenda

 

1. Who is here?

2. Who is doing what, when...?

Aim: to identify exactly what provision is currently being made for feeding homeless people in Bristol - establishing a complete list of who is providing what, where and when. This will be helpful to Crisis Centre Ministries, at least!

  • Christian groups
  • Other groups

3. ... and why?

Aim: to consider what are we seeking to achieve. It's maybe not as obvious as we first thought.

4. Ways forward

Aim: a discussion to consider ways in which we could work together or help each other.

We could:

  • Share or agree standards so our clients will find it harder to play us off against each other, and maybe work to develop a code of 'best practice'.
  • Discuss issues of common interest, such as policies on charging, handling violent, abusive and disruptive people, communicating about difficult people and incidents, etc.
  • Expand future meetings beyond the Christian groups

Other ideas?

4. What next?

Aim: a concrete decision.

What do people want to do next? If it is another meeting, who will be invited, by whom, and when? Will it be 'sponsored' by BCAN, VOSCUR, some other group, or stand alone?
