New Initiative Launched To Help Bradford's Rough Sleepers

More than 30 organisations have joined forces under the banner of #BradfordCares to raise awareness of the Problem

A new council-backed initiative been has been launched to drastically reduce rough sleeping

and begging in the Bradford district.

Known as Bradford Cares , the initiative brings together individuals representing over 30

organisations, who will work in partnership to raise awareness of the issues surrounding people

who beg and inform the public of positive ways to give.

A new website -- www.streetsupport.net -- will provide a one-stop-shop for information where

people can find help or give help. A high-profile awareness campaign will highlight the provision

of support the city has, and encourage people to help rough sleepers via the Bradford Cares

platform.

Bradford-based cooperative agency Chapel Street Studio -- who are the creative lead on the

project -- are now inviting the people to share their views in an online survey as part of a wider

study to better understand the different viewpoints surrounding the issues.

You can find the online survey and more information about the campaign by searching

#bradfordcares on social media, and join the conversation on the Bradford Cares Forum

Facebook group.
