Working Together to Fight Poverty and the Causes of Poverty
“We’re very impressed by the work being down by all these charities and the fact that they’re banding together under the 5K Partnership, and the City Council is keen to support that work”.
Dr Angela E Raffle, Consultant in Public Health, Bristol City Council
“The 5K Partnership is such an important initiative, and really does deserve the support of the people of Bristol”
Right Reverend Mike Hill, the Bishop of Bristol
“Food poverty is the inability to afford food or to have access to enough food to make up a healthy diet. It is about the quality of food as well as quantity. It is not just about hunger, but also about being appropriately nourished to attain and maintain health.”

The 5K Partnership is an umbrella organisation built on the principle of cooperation. It provides a context for existing organizations to improve the support provided for some of the most vulnerable people across Bristol and the surrounding areas.
Each of the member organizations is already making a significant impact, but we hope that by working cooperatively and more strategically, we will be able to do even more to combat poverty in Bristol.
