A little bit about us and our history

Provide people with security

Our mission

Our mission is to provide temporary accommodation and support services for people who are homeless while also working to address the root causes of homelessness in our community.

Our approach

Our approach to supporting homeless individuals is both practical and effective. Our flagship project, Help Bristol’s Homeless Village, features converted shipping containers that offer safe and secure accommodations for those who are sleeping rough. This unique approach has proven successful in meeting the needs of this vulnerable population.

Our charity was founded in 2017 by Jasper Thompson, who was motivated by the increase in homelessness in our city.

In addition to providing temporary accommodation, we also offer a range of support services to help people get back on their feet. Our team includes experienced professionals who provide advice and guidance on a range of issues, including housing, health, employment, and addiction.

We are proud of the work that we do at Help Bristol’s Homeless, and we’re grateful for the support of our volunteers, donors, and partners. Together, we can make a real difference in the lives of people who are homeless in Bristol.

If you are interested in learning more about our organisation or want to get involved, please take a look at our website or reach out to us directly. We would be delighted to hear from you.

“I simply wanted to create a space where Bristol’s homeless get a chance to change their lives and a home is the beginning of that journey.”

Jasper (H. Thompson) – CEO, Help Bristol’s Homeless
