Caring at Christmas is a registered charity that helps homeless people at Christmas and throughout the year. Over the Christmas week, we run a Christmas Shelter for people who are homeless or vulnerably housed in Bristol. This includes accommodation, food, medical services and entertainment.

Every year, UWE staff and students are terrific in supporting Caring at Christmas and donating much needed goods to the homeless shelter.
