Taziker joins the battle against homelessness and the issues it causes


Taziker is playing its part to help the homeless in the surrounding community whilst it works on refurbishing Bristol Temple Meads station.

The multi-disciplinary contractor has joined Caring in Bristol’s newly-established programme, Caring Corporates. It will help Caring in Bristol whilst working on the site, which will be until 2023.

Caring in Bristol was launched in 1987. It has expanded over the years to provide emergency care to those facing homelessness and support to prevent the issue from occurring. Taziker will be part of a team of businesses that are working together to help Caring in Bristol create a city that is empowered to solve homelessness.

Business development director for south at Taziker, Tom Nicotra, said: “It’s great to hear about all the amazing work Caring in Bristol are doing in respect of homeless prevention and support. Taziker and the local Bristol Temple Meads team are looking forward to working with the other organisations in the Caring Corporates programme to devise ideas to fundraise for this important cause.”

Taziker previously worked with Caring in Bristol by donating to Tap for Bristol. This is an initiative from Bristol City Centre Business Improvement District, in partnership with Caring in Bristol, to give people the ability to donate using contactless payment on their card or phone. Last year, a TAP point was installed at Bristol Temple Meads station, and Taziker tapped to donate £450.

Corporate and community partnerships coordinator for Caring in Bristol, Luke Mitchell, said: “We are really looking forward to working with Taziker and a massive thank you on behalf of everyone here at CiB.  Taziker have joined our brand-new partnership programme, which means they will be part of a team of like-minded and passionate businesses working together to help Caring in Bristol create a city empowered to solve homelessness.”
