Creating the Conditions

1. Creating the Conditions to reduce and prevent loneliness

The projects within this theme aim to take a strategic approach to tackling loneliness by changing attitudes, cultures and policies across the City and within communities. We want to influence the way the public sector operates in Bristol so that they change behaviours and procedures to be more empowering for older people and support their contribution to City life.

This kind of change needs to happen at every level and we want to work with Media and communications to tackle stereotypes and send more positive messages about ageing to the general public, including specifically employers and community groups.
