How We Can Help

Information and Advice

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.

Day Centre

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.

Telephone Befriending

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.
