Jasper Thompson

Jasper (full name Hubert Thompson) was born in Jamaica but has lived in the UK for most of his adult life. He has always tried to help those less fortunate than himself but, in the last couple of years, has become more and more aware of the increasing number of homeless people on the streets of Bristol.
In early 2017, he and his wife started handing out hot food to the homeless on a Sunday morning in the centre of Bristol, they were soon joined by many supportive volunteers. But Jasper felt there was more he could do.
Through contacts, he was offered an old mobile home and a site to place it on. On the site was a shipping container which inspired him to start converting them into self-contained micro flats. Since then, Help Bristol’s Homeless has converted 11 micro flats as well as a double decker bus and are hoping to move onto a more permanent site soon.


Jasper Thompson's Project

Homelessness and rough sleeping is on the rise everywhere.  When Jasper Thompson noticed an increase in rough sleeping in his home town, he decided to do something about it. He wanted to give them a tangible route to turn their lives around. And that starts with housing. And so he started Help Bristol's Homeless.
