Centre celebrates helping 100
THE North Bristol Advice Centre is celebrating supporting more than 100 isolated older people in the first year of its home visiting project.
The Community Support at Home Project is a free home visiting service for older men and women in North Bristol.
A team of trained volunteers have supported isolated or disabled older people by listening to their needs and pointing them to relevant services and organisations.
The project has also been offering free computer courses for older people thanks to the Connect Lockleaze project and holds monthly social meetings for people to stay in touch.

The Tuesday Tea and Talk sessions are a vital link for people to stay in touch with others, many of whom rarely leave the house. Volunteers have also accompanied people to group activities and social occasions, which gives older people the confidence to reconnect with their community.
Project coordinator Lizzie Woodall said: "Many older men and women who live on their own can be socially isolated and many can feel acutely lonely and this project enables them to remain in control over their own lives and maintain their independence."
The North Bristol Advice Centre is based in Lockleaze.
