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. Working in partnership with many organisations and charities who care for the elderly in the region, we aim to support isolated and lonely older people in Bristol and the surrounding area.
The Society relies entirely on the generosity of donors to the Presidents’ annual collections to finance its work. This year Dr Ros Kennedy is our 250th President of the Anchor Society. Read Ros's welcome message below.

Celebrating 250 years...
We have supported numerous projects in the Greater Bristol area over the last 60 years in order to try to alleviate loneliness and to provide regular social contact and focus for activities.
We have also supported and partnered with a number of charitable housing projects believing that good housing is an essential element of well being for the frail elderly.
