We at SSAFA are so grateful for your continuing support. We seem to be seeing more and more young veterans (if that's not a contradiction) who have been badly affected by their military service overseas.

Henbury and Brentry Community Development Project

Bristol Charities delivers Community Development Services to Older people in the north of Bristol, in partnership with LinkAge. Our work involves bringing people together, fostering lasting friendships and consequently reducing social isolation and improving the health and wellbeing of older people. 

It is shaped by local people's desire to improve services and activities for older people living in the area.

Our approach has been to contact and bring together groups of older people to identify concerns, what they want to change or see happen, what they are doing already and the skills they can contribute. 

We supported the set-up of an Advisory Group of Older People who make decisions on local developments.

The group were clear that they wanted a diverse range of activities so there is something for everyone to get involved in, as a result of the advisory group involvement a wide range of new activities have been set up with the local community and other partners in the Henbury and Brentry area.

Please contact Freya Dodd on:  07584 279487 or email: communitydevelopment@bristolcharities.org.uk for more information on activities.
