Although our Community Development for Older People Projects remain on hold for now, we hope to start activities again soon when it is safe to do so.

Bristol Charities is committed to working to provide support to people and communities throughout these complicated and taxing times.

Thanking you very much for the carpet you supplied to me. After many months of homelessness, I am now settled in my new flat.

Your generosity and kindness has helped me greatly and the contractors did a great job. Once again, Thank you.

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

 

  • 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.
