The Bristol One City Approach brings together a huge range of public, private, voluntary and third sector partners to work together to make Bristol fairer, healthier and more sustainable.

The Bristol City Office, funded by Bristol City Council, University of Bristol, University of the West of England, City of Bristol College, North Bristol NHS Trust and University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust, provides a convening space for everyone who wants to be involved in the One City Approach.

The One City Plan documents the year-by-year Goals until 2050, across six different Themes: Economy and Skills, Children and Young People, Transport, Homes and Communities, Environment and Health and Wellbeing.
