We improve and bring life to our urban environment
We campaign for local issues
Since 2007, the People’s Republic of Stokes Croft – PRSC – has worked tirelessly to promote civil liberty with a particular focus on public space.

Stokes Croft Food Project is a collaboration between local businesses, charities and campaigners, set up to tackle hunger and food poverty in Stokes Croft by providing nutritious food to those most in need in our community, particularly during this global health crisis.
