Bristol and the wider region
Improving the wellbeing and independence of older people
Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.
Alleviating loneliness and social isolation to improve the health, well-being and independence of older and, often, vulnerable people in Bristol and the surrounding areas are at our core. Based on the generosity of donors to the President’s annual appeal, the Grateful Society (both in combination with other charities and on its own) supports around 25 volunteer led partner organisations that tackle this issue.
