Dear M Mounty,

 

Please see the below response to your FoI request:

 

1.       Could you confirm what partnerships have been established to increase community safety?

 

Working with the police, partners such as St Mungo’s, Bristol Waste Company, City Centre BID and more to address street community issues in the city, working with partners on the Clean Streets campaign, working with partners to improve the Bearpit.

 

 

2.       Could you confirm how many “Bin it to win it” postcards have been handed to members of the public, the monthly winners of vouchers and how much kingdom have invested in this project working in partnership with the council since contract award?

 

We have been unable to deliver this project due to an inability to resolve GDPR issues internally. Bristol already has a similar scheme called City Give.

 

 

3.       Could you give me an overview of Kingdom’s environmental awareness projects with the schools of Bristol?

 

Due to the length of the pilot we have been focused on making the contract work. Our waste company already delivers environmental awareness activities in local schools, so there was no need to duplicate this activity.

 

 

4.       Could you confirm Kingdom’s contribution to energy efficiency as per there promise to the council?

 

I am unable to answer this question as I am unsure what this question
relates to.

 

5.       Could you confirm that 100% of officers employed on behalf of Kingdom since November 2017 live in Bristol?

 

It is against employment law for an organisation such as BCC to stipulate where officers are recruited from. A number of the enforcement officers live in Bristol.

 

 

6.       Can you confirm that Kingdom has recruited a new officer who is considered “not in education employment or training (NEET) within the 12 months of contract award?

 

Recruitment to the service has been an ongoing challenge, and enforcement
is difficult work. As the contract was for nine months this has not been
prioritised.

 

 

7.       Can you confirm Kingdom has been working with local job centres to recruit new officers?

 

Yes.

 

8.    Can you confirm the community projects kingdom have been supporting within Bristol since November 2017?

 

        Stapleton Road Project and supporting other community initiatives as they arise.

 

 

10.  Can you confirm which community connections Kingdom have made since November 2017.

 

        Stapleton Road Project and connections with ward councillors.

 

Yours sincerley
