Bristol is repurposing the campaign #WeAreBristol, launched in 2019 to challenge people to overcome their differences and focus on what they have in common. Now, during and after the Covid-19 crisis, the campaign is being used and expanded to increase community collaboration and resilience.
This includes the setting up the ‘We are Bristol’ Coronavirus hotline for citizens of Bristol, available seven days a week, helping local citizens to obtain food, medicine, dog walking support, or speak to a ‘trusted’ person to prevent loneliness. Through the hotline, the Community Support Response team allocate volunteers and organisations to those in need. Alongside this, the latest WeAreBristol #StaySafe#Stayathome film released at Easter also helps citizens feel connected at a time when they might be feeling anxious or vulnerable.
