Do you know someone from a European Union country?

The Government has advised that all EU citizens must apply for the EU Settlement Scheme to ensure their rights are protected post-Brexit.
We want everyone who lives here to have their rights protected, and are offering help with applications. If you have friends, family or neighbours from the EU, please make sure they find out more here.

Here’s a few more ideas about how you can get involved in making our communities even stronger.

  1. #WeAreInformed Stay informed of what’s happening by signing up to the #WeAreBristol newsletter
  2. #WeAreCaring Meet your neighbours, check in on more isolated or vulnerable people in your area, join a local community group,  find out how to help a child or adult you may be concerned about on our Keeping Bristol Safe website or look into volunteering at Can Do Bristol 
  3. #WeAreFosterCarers Could you make a difference to the lives of children in Bristol? We are in need of people to become foster carers, and short break carers for disabled children. Visit our fostering website to find out more.
  4. #WeAreUnited We can challenge divisions in Bristol, whether online or in our streets. We can report crimes carried out against someone because of their race, religion, sexuality, disability or gender. Find out what to do about hate crime.
