Who We Are
BAB is a partnership of individuals and organisations working together to reduce isolation and loneliness among older people in Bristol.
In November 2018, the World Health Organisation (WHO) accepted Bristol’s application to become the 705th member of the Global Network of Age-friendly Communities. The network represents cities and communities across the world who are all committed to making their areas better for older people, which also has a positive impact on the community as a whole.
To submit an application to the WHO, Bristol had to write a baseline assessment and a strategy considering the eight domains that make up an Age-friendly City. Bristol’s application was submitted by Bristol Ageing Better (BAB) and represented work from BAB, Age UK Bristol and Bristol City Council.
