Age UK Bristol
We are a local charity, committed to working with people in Bristol, enabling them to maintain their independence and quality of life. We can’t do this without you!
Age UK Bristol offer a comprehensive Information & Advice service that offers advice to anyone over 55 who lives or works in Bristol. We can also offer advice to family members who are supporting older relatives who are over 55 and live or work in Bristol.
Our day service offers a regular programme of activities that include exercise, dance, arts and crafts at the Withywood Centre. We are open 4 days a week, and we are able to provide transport for those who require it.
A supportive, listening ear and reassurance can help us to recover our confidence, so we arrange for volunteers to provide Telephone Befriending support to older people. You may refer yourself to the service or be referred by someone else who knows you.
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.
Last week we introduced a new patron – Heather Wright, Aardman Executive Producer and Head of Partner Content.
Did you know that February is the loneliest time of the year? The holidays are over and spring is still a long way off. Let’s make February a time to come together for a good cause!
