Support for you this Winter
Some older people will feel they have no option but to turn their heating off this winter in the face of another year of sky-high energy bills. But support is out there.
Age Bath & North East Somerset, Bristol, Somerset and Gloucestershire have written a joint letter to the Mayor of the West of England Dan Norris.
We expressed “collective concern” and called for “a more balanced approach to the provision of public transport within our region.”

Are you finding it hard to care for yourself or a relative? We offer up to 6 weeks of free support in an older persons home, which can include shopping, cooking and housework as well as liaising with GP's and other services in the area.
You might be worrying how you will heat your home this winter or need advice on a relatives care. Our Information & Advice team have a wealth of experience dealing with any issues that affect later life, so let us put your mind at rest.
The Pandemic has made some people feel increasingly isolated and lonely for many reasons. So whether you want to learn how to video call your family, find local support groups or you'd like a regular chat with someone, don't hesitate to contact us.
Work right in the heart of the community and gain key skills by becoming a paid Wellbeing Support Worker.
"I feel proud to work as part of such an incredible team. It is a privilege to meet and support so many older people and I love how diverse and flexible my days are. Knowing my visits make such a difference to so many, is beyond rewarding."
Our volunteer roles are varied, fun and rewarding all whilst giving something back to the community. Whatever time you have to spare, we'd love to hear from you.
We are deeply concerned. 48% of people who answered our survey said they had lost confidence with many more worried about the future. Please donate today to our Confidence Appeal.
We need your support more than ever during the winter. So whether you run, bake, cycle or make, we have lots of fundraising ideas for you. You can be sure, your money will go back into helping the older people in your community.
