Helping Christians Respond To Social Needs
Bristol Homeless Forum
Night outreach service continues 5 nights per week with 2 shifts on Friday night from 9pm - 3.30 am.
Numbers of women seen fluctuate but in recent months have averaged around 46 different women per month supported on outreach, 43 different women supported per month in drop-in and 72 women per month supported in casework. Total women supported per month 103.
Police enforcement is sporadic and following police re-structure there is a lack of dedicated resource to enforce kerb crawling / soliciting. However we continue to work closely with police to ensure women are supported and provided with support to find routes out.
One25 have been invited to stage 2 of Women and Girls Big Lottery funding. If successful, our casework funding will be secure for 5 years!
There is a new (nearly new) van, which is in the final stages of preparation before use.
Copies of the One25 annual report are available.
