We rely on your support to keep helping older people. Any donation is greatly appreciated, and every £1 you donate can be turned into £16 of extra support for older people in Bristol.


Our amazing volunteers help us to do so much in Bristol. Whether you have two hours or a day to spare, we have plenty of opportunities for volunteers.


Whether you want to walk, run, bake, or even jump out of a plane, we have loads of fundraising ideas and events for people who want to help us make a difference.

Our achievement of the Age UK Charity Quality Standard recognises the high standard of our performance as an organisation.  It certifies that our organisation is well governed and managed; has a clear direction and strategy; and is committed to ensuring the well-being and safety of older people, our staff and volunteers.
