Who We Are
BAB is a partnership of individuals and organisations working together to reduce isolation and loneliness among older people in Bristol.
‘It is often difficult to find out what is available/going on for older people’, quote from older person aged 50-65.
When we were writing the BAB bid to the Big Lottery Fund we spoke to over 2,000 older people about the plans and 14% of them suggested ‘more information about local activities’ was the best way of stopping older people getting lonely.
As part of the literature review for the BAB bid, we found a range of different Community Navigator models and discovered that are an effective means of tackling isolation.
Community Navigators are staff or volunteers who help individuals to connect and utilise a range of services and relevant organisations
