The Homelessness Expert Citizens Group
We are a group of people who have experienced homelessness ourselves. We listen to other people with similar experiences. Then we use what we've learnt to influence services. For example, we attend Bristol City Council's Preventing Homelessness Board. We also give feedback on strategy documents to the council and central government, and tell the council what we think priorities should be. In addition we try to influence the council's strategy, and help them decide what services they should commission.
