Rough sleeping and begging

Homelessness continues to be a problem in Bristol and we are working in close partnership with Bristol City Council’s Streetwise initiative and other agencies in order to do what we can help.


  • 28 October 2023

    We are continuing our joint approach with Bristol city council to tackle homelessness in Broadmead, with an effort to find the most vulnerable somewhere to live.

  • 4 April 2022

    We are continuing to work with partners during the pandemic to reduce the amount of rough sleepers in the city centre.

    St Mungo’s are also doing fantastic work with the Outreach team who visit those rough sleeping every morning and evening offering clothing, food and any other supplies needed.

    If you walk through Broadmead you will now see contactless donation points.

    These points will take £2 from your account and all the money goes directly to St Mungos in order to support the fantastic work being done to support those sleeping rough and keep shelters open. Homeless Shelters are and remain free to all service users.

    There has also been an increase in begging in the city. If you are inclined to assist the homeless, please give generously to St Mungo’s as 100% of your money will go to helping the homeless.
