The Anchor Society

In the 250 years since it was formed in 1769, The Anchor Society has concerned itself with the care of older people in the Bristol area. The Anchor Society works in partnership with many organisations and charities supporting vulnerable isolated and lonely older people in Bristol and the surrounding area. A key part of the Anchor Society’s work is to give grants to individuals over 55 who are in financial need. Do go to our grants page if you are a referrer. For more information about the Anchor Society’s projects do go to our projects page.



We provide grants to isolated, elderly people in genuine immediate need in the Bristol area. Request a grant
