We have recently seen a spike in use of and distribution of synthetic cannabinoid known commonly as Spice. We are working hard to eliminate the supply of the drug, which is now a Class B, by increasing patrols and implementing disruption tactics.
Homelessness continues to be a problem in Bristol and we are working in close partnership with Bristol City Council's Streetwise initiative and other agencies in order to do what we can help.
St Mungo's are also doing fantastic work with the Outreach team who visit those rough sleeping every morning and evening offering clothing, food and any other supply's needed.
If you walk through The Broadmead you will now see Contactless Donation points. These points will take £2 from your account and all the money goes directly to St Mungo's in order to support the fantastic work being done to support those sleeping rough and keep shelters open.
Homeless Shelters are and remain free to all service users.
There has also been an increase in begging in the city. If you are inclined to assist the homeless, please give generously to St Mungo's as 100% of your money will go to helping the homeless.
We are aware of issues regarding Anti-Social Behaviour and rough sleeping in some of Central Bristol car parks. This poses a risk to those inside the car parks parking their vehicle, the vehicles themselves as well as those who work in the car park. we are working with company who look after the car parks to tackle the issue.
