Improving outcomes for Bristol children, young people and families is the key driver for all our work. In order to do this, we must prioritise and focus on key issues. The Bristol Children and Young People’s Plan (CYPP) is the overarching strategic plan to improve outcomes for children, young people and families. The Children’s Services Scrutiny Commission receives quarterly reports on how well we are doing against key performance indicators.  It will also receive updates on our plans and strategies.  The agendas and minutes of these meetings are available on our Committee Minutes page. Our schools, colleges, child care providers and children’s social services are inspected regularly and reports of these inspections can be found on the Ofsted website. We have produced a needs assessment examining the causes and impacts of child poverty in the form of a blog.  You can access it and contribute to the debate. The site also contains a wider series of data, analysis and consultation on the lives of children, young people and families in Bristol.

We are committed to improving our performance in the top 100 Stonewall Employers index and this is one of the council’s key equalities objectives in our Single Equality Scheme 2010-13. In 2011 we came 75th out of 378 leading employers in Britain and we hope to improve this year on year, despite increasing competition. We also subscribe to the Stonewall Education champions programme. In 2011 we were given 8th place in recognition of targeted work supported by local schools. The council was awarded City of Sanctuary status in March 2011 by the City of Sanctuary National Network, an organisation that is made up of representatives from 10 cities. Our new status recognises that services to refugees here are among the best in Britain.

Bi Visible Bristol
Website: Visit Website
Bivisible Bristol is a new and informal group/network. It was set up to address the seeming lack of any bisexual presence in Bristol. At the moment, an internet search of “bisexual” and “Bristol” yields no useful results, the same is true for social networking sites. There are no services, groups or entertainment specifically for bisexual people in Bristol. It is our opinion that this needs to change. Bisexually identified people can experience unique discrimination from both the gay and straight communities and are also frequently ‘invisible’ in society, despite the fact that every LGB(T) agency has the “B” in their name and bisexual people tend to outnumber gay and lesbian people combined. This group hopes to highlight that Bristol is not a bi invisible city by offering occasions to meet and chat with other bisexual people

The city of Bristol, England, is a unitary authority, represented by four MPs representing seats wholly within the city boundaries. As well as these, Filton and Bradley Stoke covers the northern urban fringe in South Gloucestershire and the north eastern urban fringe is in the Kingswood constituency. The overall trend of both local and national representation became left of centre, favouring the Labour Party and Liberal Democrats during the latter 20th century, but there was a shift to the right in the 2010 general election (although this was not reflected in the local elections). The city has a tradition of local activism, with environmental issues and sustainable transport[1] being prominent issues in the city. The most recent City council elections were in May 2011. The next are expected in May 2013.  For information and up to date council meeting webcasts visit the Council and Democracy pages, at http://www.bristol.gov.uk/nav/council-and-democracy

The Bristol Crossroads group has been supporting the transgender community in and around Bristol, under various names, for over 25 years. The meetings are informal and provide the opportunity for all transgendered people (Transvestites, Crossdressers, Transexuals, both male-to-female and female-to-male) and their partners and family to meet and dress in a safe and supportive environment. There are changing facilities available for those who need them.

Not all transgendered people can dress at home or have the confidence to join the more public girls and boys at other venues. At a Crossroads meeting you can dress and chat with other people like yourself, learn new skills (e.g. makeup), find out about places that provide the special items that we need to make us in to the girl or boy we want to be (e.g. breastforms, clothes etc) and get information about other groups and activities that you may like to take part in.

If you are taking your first tentative steps out of the closet or have only been able to dress occasionally at home but you want to meet and chat with others just like you, or your family or partner would like to chat with others in their situation, contact us and come along to a meeting. It could be the start of a whole new world.

Bristol Multi Faith Forum (BMFF) was established in 2004 following consultation with the city’s faith communities and community sector.  The format for BMFF is one that has been developed through the feedback of the faith communities whilst also considering the wider city objectives in association with the Bristol Partnership, Safer Bristol and the city Council. During 2007 became an independent body funded by the Council. A development worker, Irene Prentice, was appointed in October to develop the objectives of BMFF.  The Forum meets every other month, at venues of the members. BMFF seeks to achieve its aims by:

  • Giving a voice for people of faith following a decade where faith has been greatly sidelined.
  • Serving as a Forum for Faith Communities to enter into dialogue with each other and with relevant organs of the statutory, private and voluntary sectors.
  • Developing and nurturing leadership in the faith communities, in partnership with those communities, in order to do the above and also to be a platform for focus on commonalities and shared objectives amongst the faiths.

These are the offices of ISR. Meetings of the forum rotate through the main meeting places of each of the member faiths (mosques, temples, churches, synagogues etc).  You can contact the Forum through:
