FIND OUT MORE ABOUT WWLW

Alive is a charity dedicated to improving the quality of life of older people and their carers. 

Bristol Elders Groups

Alive are very pleased to be supporting the Elders Project which consists of three social clubs attended predominantly by the Afro-Caribbean community. 

Two of the groups are based in Easton and the third is based in St Paul’s.

Meeting Centres

The Alive Dementia Meeting Centres offer support for people with a recent diagnosis of a dementia, and people living with a mild to moderate dementia and their carers.

We offer practical help and social and emotional support.

Alive On Demand

Need some inspiration for new activities? Looking to engage and educate your residents? Alive On Demand is here! 

Join us for a demonstration on the benefits of using Alive On Demand and how it can assist with your day-to-day activities. 

ALIVE Gardening

Alive has been running social and therapeutic horticulture sessions in care homes and community gardens for over a decade.

We’re passionate about how gardening and connecting with nature can transform people’s lives.

One Good Turn

In April Alive received funding to run an intergenerational social action project across Bristol, South Glos and North Somerset.

Our intergenerational work links older people living in care homes with younger people between the ages of 5 and 16. 

Tech To Connect

As we move toward a more technology-enabled world, we need to ensure that older people are able to access opportunities and services and aren’t left isolated.

Alive has two initiatives supporting this.

Resource Library

Alive has a great selection of activity and learning resources in the online resource library.

Browse pamphlets on best practice, community engagement and volunteering. Get your hands on our wonderful conversation cards to support you, as a relative, friend or carer, to build social connections and conversation.
