Bristol Giving Day Bristol Giving Day

The power of our combined actions

Up Our Street is a charity based in the inner city Bristol neighbourhoods of Easton and Lawrence Hill. We empower local residents to bring about the changes they wish to see in their community through community development and communications projects.
 
Every year Up Our Street organises a Thank You awards for local people to recognise the actions of individuals that make a difference where they live. A lot of the news you hear about our neighbourhood can be quite negative, this is one of the ways we highlight the incredible work carried out by hundreds of volunteers every year. 
 
The event seeks to recognise the power of our combined actions at a time when many can feel helpless and isolated. While some of the awards presented are for big actions carried out by well-known local leaders, many are for the less visible but equally necessary efforts of ordinary citizens, a reminder that everyone has something valuable to contribute and that their efforts make a difference.
