The Mayor's Fund for Bristol

21 December 2016

Last week Marvin Rees launched the new Mayor's Fund for Bristol at the Wild Goose Drop-In Centre.

The Mayor’s Fund for Bristol was established by George Ferguson in 2013, and Marvin Rees has re-launched it this year to tackle the problems of housing and homelessness within the city. Over the next year the fund will support organisations and charities who work to provide medium to long term solutions and systematic change.

The Mayor's Fund is part of a wider partnership-based approach looking at homelessness and rough sleeping. Organisations across Bristol (including Golden Key) are working to find both short and long term solutions to the problem. This includes the current #SOSBristol campaign which aims to raise £100,000 to provide beds this winter.

The Fund will be managed by the Quartet Foundation and the maximum grant awarded will be £2000. Anyone can donate!
