Diversity Week: Monday 26th – Friday 30th April
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions in mixing with other people, we have had to do our annual Diversity Day a little differently this year.
Introducing … 2021’s Bristol Diversity Trails! From 26th-30th April, we will be holding a series of walks across Bristol which recognise and celebrate Bristol’s diverse history. Join a guided walk, take up a ride with Ride Out Ride On, Bristol’s inclusive cycling project, or use our interactive packs to follow the trails independently. Join us on Friday 30th April for a virtual event to wrap everything up. We would love all staff, locums, volunteers and clients to get involved – read on for more details!
Join us for one of our guided walks throughout the week.
You can book onto a walk for each of the trails through Eventbrite below.

If you need a bit more support to take part in a diversity trail, why not try a free inclusive cycling session?
Clients, volunteers and staff members are all welcome to book onto a cycling session with Holly from Ride Out Ride On (RoRo).
The inclusive cycling service is suitable for anyone who may need a bit of extra support to get out and about – whether that’s for physical or mental health reasons.
The recumbent tandem can be adjusted to suit your individual needs.

What is the South West Diversity & Inclusion (SWD&I) Network?
The SWD&I Network is a network set up especially for staff, locums and volunteers across the South West region. We created the network by combining all of the St Mungo’s networks under one umbrella: to celebrate, support, educate and influence around diversity issues, especially those in our region.
To achieve these aims, we run events, workshops and training in a range of different contexts. We also send out a monthly newsletter with ideas for how staff, volunteers and locums can celebrate diversity in their services.
