Bristol Charities continues to operate during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Although our Head Office is shut and most of our Head Office staff are working from home, you can contact us by email or by phone on our Head Office phone number 0117 930 0301. We continue to run our Almshouses and Extra Care scheme, with staff on site. Our Grants Programme is running, please keep checking our website for details of when we are accepting applications for Grants. 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.

I just wanted to thank you for the grant you have kindly awarded to my applicant. This has meant so much to him and his family.

Your grant has paid for his Year 6 residential camping trip, which he is really looking forward to. It has also given us the opportunity to purchase items he will need for his week away. 

The week away with his peers; camping in tents, participating in water sports, circus skills, team building, barbecues on the beach and a disco, will give him such wonderful and happy memories. 

Without your grant he would have not been able to go and, as a young carer, he truly deserves this wonderful experience. 

I cannot thank you enough for your kindness.

Haberfield House 

Address: Haberfield House, Hollway Road, Stockwood, BS14 8AD

Haberfield House is our brand new Extra Care Scheme for Older People on Hollway Road in Stockwood, Bristol.

With our population ageing, it is recognised older people need extra support to help them maintain active, safe and independent lives. We feel that Haberfield House provides a great opportunity for Bristol Charities to provide high quality housing in the Stockwood area and to enhance local facilities for the older people of Bristol, giving us the opportunity to offer effective support if their health and wellbeing circumstances change. 

The scheme is located on the junction between Hollway Road, Stockwood Road and Materman Road, sharing a boundary on the East of the site with Bluebell Gardens, an existing Extra Care scheme for older people. This site was chosen specifically because of the opportunity it offers Bristol Charities to link in with Bluebell Gardens with the advantage of both sites being based in the heart of the Stockwood community.

Our three storey apartment block provides 60 high quality homes; a mixture of one bed, two bed and wheelchair accessible properties (two bed) for older people with on-site Care and Support provision, a feature of Extra care Housing. There are also a range of communal spaces and facilities for residents. These include a communal lounge and dining area, hobby, activity and therapy rooms. There is also resident only parking, communal gardens and a call system enabling all residents access to round the clock emergency support if needed.
