Different issues, the same streets campaignIn 2017 we produced an information leaflet, aimed at local businesses, residents and visitors, which sets out some of the key issues related to street drinking, begging and rough sleeping in Truro.
The leaflet gives details of the organisations that are providing support, and contacts if people have any local concerns and how people can help. The leaflet was coordinated by Cornwall Council’s Localism Team and produced on behalf of Truro Safe and has been funded by the BID. If you would like some leaflets for your business, please call the BID team on 01872 273999

The Truro Safe donation boxes are located in: Co-Op, Quintessential, Waterstones, Wetherspoons, Tesco, Superdry, Newell's Travel, Sole Plaice Fish & Chip shop and CeX Truro.
