Bishopston, Cotham and Redland Community Partnership (BCR CP) is inviting local community groups to become founder members of the Community Partnership. 

 Founder members will sign up to the aims of the Community Partnership and will be integral to bringing forward the purpose of the CP. 

 This is an open invitation to any individuals and groups who would like to be part of the new organisation; you are invited to have a look at our new website and how you can join at bcrcp.org.uk/join

 The BCR CP has been set up to carry on the best practice of the former Bishopston, Cotham and Redland Neighbourhood Partnership following the withdrawal of funding and officer support for the Neighbourhood Partnerships in Bristol.

 The BCR CP area will cover the neighbourhoods within and around the wards of Bishopston and Ashley Down, Cotham and Redland.

 BCR CP aims to:

• Encourage and promote community spirit and cohesion, and the involvement of local people in community affairs;

• Seek to safeguard and improve the social, physical and cultural character of our area;help people in our area to have a greater influence on decisions affecting their lives;

• Support local community groups, institutions and businesses to contribute positively to the quality of life in our area. 

The steering group has been meeting since April 2017 to draw up the Constitution and Aims of the proposed BCR CP organisation (see website) and is planning a first Annual General Meeting in early 2018 where the first full committee and officers will be chosen and the constitution proposed for adoption.
