The big yellow bus project

17th September 2019

During a recent visit to Cirencester College, Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown MP had the opportunity to discuss the Big Yellow Bus project based in Cirencester. The project is focused on providing rough sleepers with low cost, overnight accommodation which is especially important during the colder months. The Big Yellow Bus has been converted to provide warm, comfortable sleeping and basic cooking facilities. The design was carefully considered and includes an area for females to sleep with privacy and security. The project is funded by donations and the proceeds of local charity events.

Sir Geoffrey received a kind invite to be shown around the bus at some point and discuss the project further.

Commenting on the project, Sir Geoffrey said:

“The Big Yellow Bus project is truly inspirational, and the volunteers do a fantastic job in helping vulnerable people in the area. I look forward to organising a visit to the bus to discuss the work being done in more detail.

“I firmly believe that just one person without a roof over their head is one too many, and it is vitally important that the most vulnerable people in society are supported, that is why I am pleased over £1.2 billion has been allocated to tackle homelessness and rough sleeping through to 2020. While this is welcome progress, there is much more to be done”

How to raise an issue

Call 020 7219 5043 or email cliftonbrowng@parliament.uk if you wish to raise an important matter with me - but please check "What can an MP do for me?" in the section before making contact.

In some cases a face-to-face appointment/pre-arranged telephone call may be necessary in order to discuss and pursue matters personally.

However, I ask that all cases must first be raised with me in writing by letter or email.

Once initial enquiries have been made on your behalf then I will consider the best and most appropriate way forward in order to help you.

WHAT CAN AN MP DO FOR ME?

Many people think that their MP exists to solve all their problems for them: this is not the case.

MPs are there to legislate and help only with those matters for which Parliament or central government is responsible.

For many matters, the appropriate first step would be to contact your local Cotswold District or Gloucestershire County Councillor.
