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 Gardening

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

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

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 or carer – to build social connections and conversation.
