Bristol Charities has recently been successful on winning Lottery Funding through the Bristol Ageing Better Programme, to deliver a Community Development for Older People project in Greater Brislington.
"Whether it's Tai Chi, Ballroom Dancing, Men or Women's Group, or whatever, the project will work to help develop and deliver what local people want".
This funding will be used to build on and enhance the existing work and activities for over 50's within the local communities. Any developments will be Community and Older People driven to ensure that the community gets what it needs and that activities enhance what is already taking place, rather than duplication/undermining. Community ownership of the project and its developments is essential to the success and the long-term sustainability of the project.
Call for members of the Advisory Group
The first step for the project is to set up a Local Advisory Group, and organise open sessions to get as many local people involved in designing the project as possible.
Please get in touch if you would like to get involved, or have any ideas or suggestions, and help us to develop a project which will make a real difference to the lives of over 50's within Greater Brislington.
