  • Change to Malago Vale Library - 29%
  • Other - 4%

We Asked

The consultation survey was designed to set out the current position and challenges of homelessness in the city and capture views on the five priories and their associated objectives and approaches, as set out in the draft strategy. It asked how strongly respondents agreed with these priorities and invited any comments in a free text section. It also invited respondents to identify the top five actions (from a list of 16) the city should focus on to reduce rough sleeping and homelessness also with additional comments in a free text section.

You Said

Overall, there were 377 responses to the survey.

The responses to the survey are summarised in the Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy 2019-24 consultation report.

We Did

The Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy 2019-2024 consultation report was taken into account to develop the draft strategy and action plan further before it was considered by Cabinet and was approved on 3 September 2019.

You can read the Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy 2019-2024 here.

Further detail on how the responses to the consultation have shaped the draft strategy and action plan is indicated in Appendix 1.

 

 

We Asked

Bristol City Council is responsible for the funding and management of Public Health in Bristol. The Public Health funding given to local authorities by central government has reduced by an estimated £700m in recent years. Bristol Public Health has reduced its spending by 17.5% since 2015. Bristol City Council needs to make an additional £2m in savings over the next two years because of reduced funding from central government.

This consultation set out proposals to make these savings through a combination of decommissioning and changing services. The services affected will be:

  • Alcohol Brief Advice
  • Children’s Weight Management Services
  • Adults’ Weight Management Services
  • NHS Health Checks Service
  • Stop Smoking Services
  • Substance Misuse Services (Shared Care)
  • Sexual Health Services, including Chlamydia Screening

You Said

303 people and partners responded to the consultation.

Responses to the consultation are summarised in the Consultation Summary and Recommendations Report.

We Did

Our recommendations of changes to proposals due to the consultation response are summarised in the Consultation Summary and Recommendations Report.

This will be presented at the July Cabinet meeting.

We Asked
