Who We Are
BAB is a partnership of individuals and organisations working together to reduce isolation and loneliness among older people in Bristol.
These learning reports explore the learning we have gathered from across the BAB programme so far.
This report looks at older volunteers in the BAB programme. What have BAB projects learnt about involving volunteers aged 50+?
This report explores how BAB projects have used technology to reach and engage people aged 50+. What has worked well and why? What advice do they have for others?
In August 2019, projects within the BAB programme came together to reflect and share their learning about engaging men aged 50 and over. This topic was chosen because, across the programme, there have been significantly fewer male participants than female participants. This report outlines the key learning.
In May 2019, BAB facilitated a shared learning event with 5 of the 14 Ageing Better programmes. Programme teams, local evaluators and volunteer researchers attended from Age Better in Sheffield, Leicester Ageing Together, Ageing Well Torbay, Time to Shine Leeds and Brightlife Cheshire. This report shares the learning from this event, while the summary document outlines the 5 key findings.
In November 2017 BAB facilitated a shared learning event with the Ageing Better programmes working in Birmingham, Thanet, Hackney and Cheshire. All were at different stages of delivering initiatives similar to BAB’s Community Kick-Start fund. This report outlines the learning from this event.
At the beginning of 2018, BAB made some changes to the way in which the fund was administered. This learning report reviews the challenges and successes of the fund to date, and the changes implemented to allow it to reach even more isolated older people in its final year.
This report presents the learning from our Age Friendly Transport event, in which we heard from a variety of speakers on the topic of Age Friendly transport. Together we learnt about the barriers to Age Friendly transport and the possible short-term and long-term solutions. This learning will be used to further develop Bristol’s Age Friendly action plan.
This report presents the learning from our Age Friendly Homes event, in which we heard from a variety of speakers on the topic of Age Friendly housing. Together we learnt about the barriers to Age Friendly housing and the possible short-term and long-term solutions. This learning will be used to further develop Bristol’s Age Friendly action plan.
