HWCP is one of a number of community partnerships across Bristol that were established in the late ‘90s to support the regeneration of some of the most deprived areas in the city.
Historically, our focus has been Hartcliffe, Withywood, Bishopsworth and Whitchurch Park and we are the main point for information, advice and signposting to the services people need. Over time our remit has grown and we now provide some services across much of South Bristol.
By representing residents’ interests, and by helping their voices to be heard, we seek to enhance their overall wellbeing and enable them to seize the opportunities within the city, including training, employment, volunteering, and transport.
We aim to
- Give our local residents a voice and represent their interests.
- Encourage commercial and public sector services to locate in the area.
- Provide services that meet the needs of the community – each project and service we deliver aims to create positive improvements to the health, wellbeing and lives of our residents.
- Provide events, social opportunities and activities.
