We’re proud to support #AgeProudBristol to show we are challenging negative perceptions of #laterlife and promote a more positive view of later life. @AgeFriendBrist @BabBristol

#Volunteers like Louise make a world of difference to those on their own on Christmas Day. We're so grateful to have the support of so many amazing people. 🙌

"52% of us are unlikely to admit to feeling lonely due to the perceived attached stigma."

Taking time to listen and talk can help us to break the stigma, to combat loneliness and to feel more connected. #LetsTalkLoneliness #bluemonday2020
