Who We Are
BAB is a partnership of individuals and organisations working together to reduce isolation and loneliness among older people in Bristol.
BAB is funded by the Big Lottery Fund, using National Lottery funding, to develop and deliver a programme that identifies the best ways of reducing the isolation and loneliness of older people in the city.
There are many life changes that can contribute to a person’s isolation and factors that can make someone feel lonely. The BAB programme has been designed to take different approaches to the problem, testing ideas and improving delivery from what we learn.
The four main themes of work are:
1. Creating the Conditions to reduce and prevent loneliness
2. Identifying and Informing older people at risk of loneliness
3. Working with Communities to increase the services and activities available
4. Supporting Individuals to live fulfilling lives
Bristol Ageing Better is working towards four ambitious outcomes by 2020.

A number of projects within the programme have been specifically designed to work with older people who, research tells us, are at particular risk of isolation and loneliness in later life:
