Making Pals

Making Pals is working with care homes across the Bristol, BANES, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset areas, helping them to build long-lasting and meaningful relationships with their local communities.

By encouraging the public to engage with care homes and by empowering care home residents, we hope to change the public’s perceptions of care homes so that they are truly seen as part of the local community.

Have you thought about volunteering with older people in care homes but didn’t because you weren’t sure how, why and where? Alive’s Making Pals project is currently offering free training to help you prepare for your ideal role volunteering in a care home.
