I am writing to thank you for what you have done for me. You have given me a life. I would not know where to begin to tell you what this means to me (my scooter). Without it, I do know that my life would be intolerable as I would be housebound again. I am now able to do a lot of things that I was unable to do before. Thanks to you I now can smile as life is better for me.

Community Based Projects

Bristol Charities is committed to supporting Older People and others to have choices in their lives, to be able to live near the people and places they care about and knowing that they are valued as contributing to the well-being of their community. 

We deliver a range of local projects, community based projects and activites supporting older people:

  • Henbury and Brentry Community Projects 
  • Greater Brislington Community Development for Older People
  • Hotwells and Redcliife Community Developement Project
  • Community Support Services

Our approach is to support Older people to make the most of their strengths and forge community networks that can promote their independance. We use this approach to create new activities and support for older people in local communities throughout Bristol. We recognise that older people are keen to be involved in local (and wider) developments and to share and use their knowledge, experience and skills. All of our Community Projects are led and co-produced with local Older People.
