Caring in Bristol runs a number of small volunteer lead shelters in Bristol, many of which require funds to pay for equipment (milk, sugar, hot chocolate), members of staff to run shelters through the night and to advertise for more volunteers and physical donations.  If you are able to help us help people experiencing homelessness, please get in touch!
