Who We Are
BAB is a partnership of individuals and organisations working together to reduce isolation and loneliness among older people in Bristol.
We developed the BAB programme to consider different approaches to tackling loneliness and isolation. The other themes in the programme address strategic changes, community changes and the process through which to find isolated and lonely older people. The projects in this fourth theme will test different models of working with people on a one to one basis or in small groups. We will learn from these models and start to consider how we can secure funding for these going beyond the programme.
Professional, brief solution-focussed therapy for those whose emotional problems contribute to their loneliness.
Activities that seek to improve older people's isolation and feelings of loneliness through group work or support from their peers.
New way of working for people assessed as eligible for adult social care, isolated people receive additional volunteer support.
BAB is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund to develop and deliver a programme that identifies the best ways of reducing the isolation and loneliness of older people.
