Golden Key help launch new website for Bristol homeless
This week sees the launch of the Bristol Homeless Connect website, an online resource for those who are or are at risk of becoming homeless within Bristol.
At a time when homelessness is at a six year high, Golden Key, a member of Bristol’s Rough Sleeping Partnership, has helped bring together in one place all the information about where and how to access support if you’re homeless.
The new website helps people find shelter and food as well as how to access psychological support and legal help. This may seem an unusual resource for people without a home but recent research has shown that 70% of homeless people own a mobile phone and a high percentage access the internet regularly through friends or family.
The Golden Key partnership recognises the importance of pooling resources across the city and Second Step as the Golden Key lead partner, is doing all it can to support this important work.
