A busy few weeks...
As you may have noticed from our emails and updates, it has been a very busy time for Bristol Ageing Better. We have had our partnership meeting, a stall at the Celebrating Age Festival, collaborative workshops as well as the launch of our Blueprint for Community Development for Older People. We currently are inviting tenders for 11 contracts with a combined value of over £2 million and our Community Kick Start panel meets next week for its’ third round of funding.
Saturday 1st October was also International Day of Older Persons and this was yet another opportunity for us to celebrate older people in Bristol and the work of our partners in tackling isolation and loneliness. On Saturday we officially launched our “Little Book of AWE” (Ageing Well Everyday) which is a guide to the 5 Ways of Wellbeing for older people in the city. You can look at an electronic copy of the guide here but we also will be distributing copies of the guide across the city. We will soon have copies in every library in Bristol and we will be talking to GPs to get them there also.
If you would beinterested in having some copies, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange to have some delivered.
