Who We Are
BAB is a partnership of individuals and organisations working together to reduce isolation and loneliness among older people in Bristol.
As part of our remit to test and learn, we've created a number of reports detailing various projects. We also have reports compiled by our community researchers on various topics, and you can read a selection of these below.
Eight of BAB’s Community Researchers undertook neighbourhood asset-mapping of the Greater Fishponds area in Bristol. This report presents their findings and insights, as well as their reflections on the asset-mapping process.
A team of four Community Researchers explored ten community groups within the Greater Brislington area of Bristol, identifying their present engagement with Bristol Ageing Better, their awareness of BAB’s Kickstart Scheme and the barriers to social participation. They then make recommendations for how BAB might be able to engage better with this community.
An evaluation of BAB’s Community Kickstart Scheme. A team of Community Researchers used semi-structured interviews with funded groups to assess the strengths and limitations of the scheme, identifying areas for further improvement.
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.
BAB is funded by the Big Lottery Fund to develop and deliver a programme that identifies the best ways of reducing the isolation and loneliness of older people.
