Support Hub for Older People

The Support Hub from Bristol Ageing Better has been set up to help older people and their families cope with the impact of the coronavirus, Covid-19 in Bristol. We provide a range of practical, emotional and social support. Our new members include Carers Support Centre, Nilaari, The Exercise Club, Bristol Black Carers, Pocklington Trust, Re-engage, and Bristol Bears Rugby.

We are a growing partnership of voluntary organisations that already work to support older people in Bristol. We’re offering practical support with errands, as well as specialist information and advice on benefits & allowances, housing and social care, phone befriending, social activities by phone, online or post, as well as referrals for professional counselling for those who need a higher level of emotional support including bereavement counselling.

We are keen to support as many people as we can but we are aware that there are many support and signposting services available which older people can access and are keen to ensure we complement what others are doing without duplicating. Our offer is a ‘one-stop’ hub with support from staff who are DBS checked and who have specialist skills and experience in meeting the needs of older people.

If you would like to refer someone for any of these services, please come directly through the Support Hub helpline:
