Thank you so much for your grant of the 11th [March 2015]. I haven't yet managed to contact Mrs T but I know that she will be delighted and extremely grateful. She does not have an easy life and I am so pleased that you have managed to make it a bit easier. Once again, we in SSAFA would like to thank you most sincerely for helping one of our worthly local clients.

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.
