A confidential and safe space to ask questions about homeless deaths and remember people we have lost, hosted by Museum of Homelessness
Frequently Asked Questions shows us that some Local Authorities struggle to support their homeless residents in a meaningful way. Ultimately, this failure in their duty to society’s most vulnerable people can lead to death. The Dying Homeless Project, started by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism and now carried out by Museum of Homelessness shows a sharp increase in people dying on the streets, in hostels and in temporary accommodation.
We know from our research that many people have lost someone in the last few years, but there is not often a chance to process this. This event is an invitation for people in Bristol affected by the deaths of people who are homeless to come together and talk about death and homelessness, share experiences and think about how we as a society can prevent further unnecessary deaths.
Please note, this will not be therapeutic space, but simply a chance to talk openly and safely about a subject that can be difficult to explore.
