Isolation is a growing problem across the UK, older people feel increasingly lonely and our current systems aren't always able to help. Bristol Aging Better (BAB) will bring together organisations working with older people across Bristol, enabling them to work cohesively together and build stronger more comprehensive services to ensure everyone feels supported, needed and appreciated.

Check out the BAB website for more information at: http://www.bristolageingbetter.org.uk/

Or listen to the Aardman Animations video below to get a better understanding of the issues facing older people.
