HOMELESSNESS / POVERTY
Unique donation scheme seeking to prevent homelessness in Bristol
Bristolians can now help raise money for homelessness prevention services, as well as support those who are currently homeless, through a new contactless donation scheme.
Launched on Wednesday, TAP for Bristol is thought to be a UK first in seeking to address the causes that have led to a rise in people forced to sleep rough in the city.
“Homelessness needs more than an emergency approach,” explains Ben Richardson, director of Caring in Bristol.
