Who we are and how we are organised


The Bristol Partnership brings together partners from business, public sector, community, voluntary sector, higher and further education to make Bristol a successful city. Together the Partnership is working to deliver the Bristol 20:20 Plan, which sets out our vision, approach and plans for Bristol over the next ten years.


In summary, we have a Vision:


By 2020, Bristol will be one of Europe's top 20 cities


We have 4 strategic outcomes:

1. Making our prosperity sustainable
2. Reduce health and wealth inequalities
3. A city of strong and safe communities
4. Raising the aspirations and achievements of our children, young people and families


In January 2011, the Executive Board reviewed how we will deliver the outcomes and agreed a new Action Plan which has identified 4 strategic actions for each outcome.  The Executive Board, the 4 partnership boards and wider partners and agencies in Bristol will work togther to deliver these actions.


The Bristol Partnership works to ensure the delivery of the 20:20 plan. Set out below is how we formally organise ourselves in the context of the wider Bristol Partnership family
