The Care Forum is part of the Bristol Ageing Better (BAB) partnership. Led by Age UK, the programme is £5.9million of Lottery funding for Bristol and is a partnership of 150 organisations working to reduce social isolation and loneliness among older people and help them live fulfilling lives.
The Greater Fishponds Community Champions is a three year project which will work to ensure the area is a vibrant place with a wide range of social and cultural activities and opportunities for people to get involved.
What is the purpose of the role?
To work within an Community Development framework to develop activities which meet the needs of the community.
To represent your community and feedback what community activity exists and how it could be improved.
To identify older people who may be isolated and encourage people to take part in community actions, use existing services / groups.
To visit community groups, facilities and services to promote the BAB community project and encourage a wide variety of people to feed in their views.
Ideally volunteers will live in the Greater Fishponds area and be over 50, but this is not essential.
