Bristol City Council’s Welcoming Spaces scheme has given us the chance to further support our local community over the next few months.
Wellspring Settlement has had a café at the Ducie Road site for years, and after it closed during the pandemic there was a big push to get it open again. Being a Welcoming Space has given us the freedom to think beyond just being a café – it’s now a real community hub! People can turn up and stay as long as they like, and as the food and drink is pay-what-you-feel, there’s no pressure for them to buy anything in order to stay.
The café itself is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 11am to 1.30pm, but people are welcome to come and make use of the space even if the café is shut. There is an over 55’s group, who meet up on a Monday between 11am and 1pm, where people are welcome to come along and take advantage of the free hot drinks and biscuits. They can also speak to a tech volunteer and ask any questions they have around using their smartphone or laptop.
People are able to charge their phones and laptops here for as long as they need to. This means they can stay online to manage bills, check emails, and stay connected with friends and family. We’ve got a host of activities running alongside the café, and a children’s corner with toys and books.
We also offer information about the other services on offer at Wellspring Settlement, which include money advice, support in accessing other community activities, family services, community arts, physical activities and more.
All the food we’re serving is hot and healthy, with veggie and halal options. It’s all cooked by us – except on the days when we have our guest cooks from the Bristol Somali Women’s group who are serving up some amazing meals every Thursday.
One of the highlights of being a Welcoming Space is that it’s created volunteering opportunities for local people. We’ve got volunteers who are giving their time to help out, and also developing valuable skills that will help them in the future. To connect with volunteering opportunities, check the Can Do Bristol website.
Wellspring Settlement has a really positive atmosphere, and it’s great to see people of all ages and backgrounds enjoying each other’s company. People are enjoying the food and we’ve had a mix of people taking up the offer of a free meal, and people who are able to make a donation. The children’s corner has been really popular, with mums hanging out there rather than having to keep buying cups of tea to stay in a café.
We are very aware that for some people the worst of the national cost of living crisis, is yet to come. We have been lucky with a warm autumn so far, but temperatures have started to drop.
Residents in Barton Hill are likely to be among the hardest hit by increased energy and food bills, both of which are factors that contribute to wider health issues. Many local people live in poor housing which will only become worse if not heated over winter, and they already struggle to afford and cook healthy food.
We’re happy at the moment that the space is being established as one that is truly welcoming, whatever the need might be. As we move into winter, we’re confident our community will know where they can go to access healthy, hot food, save on bills, and find support from each other, from Wellspring Settlement and community and city partners.
If you need any cost of living advice or support visit the Bristol City Council cost of living support webpage to find organisations who can help you. You can also call the We Are Bristol helpline for free on 0800 694 0184, Monday to Friday 8.30am to 5pm.
As we start to feel the cold of the winter months, some people across Bristol will be deciding between heating their homes and putting food on the table. This is an incredibly challenging place to be in and a place I wish we weren’t. With energy bills and other costs rising, we want to make sure that the Bristol residents most impacted by the national cost of living crisis have access to help and support.
Since April I have been having regular conversations with community partners, and it was clear back then that we needed to be ready for a gear change in autumn as the cost of living continued to increase. Until recently people haven’t needed to put the heating on much but, as the colder months begin, things will get more difficult for many.
As part of these discussions, the concept of warm, Welcoming Spaces was developed. The first of these spaces are now open. We want to support residents struggling with rising energy prices without stigmatising people. We’re already seeing that some people who haven’t face financial challenge before now are, and it’s important to us that everyone feels welcome.
A Welcoming Space is a place that is already established in the community, for example a community centre, care home, children’s centre, or places of worship, where people can meet up, socialise, keep warm and if needed access support with the cost of living crisis. These spaces are inclusive, accessible and about communities coming together.
Venues will be responding to community priorities which means what happens in each space will vary, but is likely to include Wi-Fi, access to electrical charging points, activities and community meals. There will be support provided by city-wide organisations including practical advice about money and finance, emotional wellbeing, mental health support, and employment and skills.
Bristol is a city that will continue to step up and support each other in difficult times. Welcoming Spaces have been made possible because of our incredible community, voluntary, and faith organisations, as well as city council services responding to this crisis. They draw on a community infrastructure that was strengthened during the pandemic, including volunteer groups and facilities. It is for all of us to get behind them and do what we can to make them a success.
There are already several city organisations working together to coordinate help for the Welcoming Spaces. If you could play a part and support Welcoming Spaces please complete the form on our website. This could include providing equipment or transport or support for advice on money, welfare and mental wellbeing.
If you’d like to make a difference in your community during the cost of living crisis and you have some time to spare there are also a range of volunteering opportunities available through Can Do Bristol, from befriending and peer support, to cooking and driving. It is now well established that volunteering has real benefits for our health and wellbeing.
We know we cannot solve the cost of living crisis, but by adopting a One City approach, everyone is able to come together and help reduce cost of living pressures in their communities. The One City cost of living plan is available on the council website.
On Tuesday 11 October, a group of Bristol leaders, including myself, wrote to the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities Simon Clarke MP to outline our partnership approach to supporting residents during the cost of living crisis and inviting government to visit to engage with us on how we’re responding. The letter also calls on government to improve the level of crisis funding available to local authorities to enable them to better plan support with partners.
If you or someone you know needs support, please reach out. Our We Are Bristol helpline is available for calls Mon to Fr 8.30am to 5pm – 0800 694 0184.
