Grants and financial assistance

We provide single and regular grants to isolated, elderly people in genuine immediate need in the Bristol area.

Visiting and befriending

The regular befriending of elderly people by volunteers is a very rewarding experience both for the volunteers as well as the befriended.

We have a number of dedicated volunteers who visit those people in receipt of regular grants and financial assistance in their own homes, filling a vital role of companionship, guidance and support.

Housing Projects

In recent years Anchor has collaborated with others trusts and charities to develop a number of sheltered housing and day care projects. We have also recently completed the development of a charitable, sheltered housing project for the elderly in Lawrence Weston, Bristol.
