“Raj had a happy, secure childhood with lots of opportunities so he knew the job and fulfilment that sport and music give young people. Because we both grew up in Bristol, we knew that too many children and young people here don’t have those same chances.”
Ash was a young person who had significant issues going on at home and in her personal life, and these plus the usual pressures of growing up as a teenager led into her getting into trouble in school and having lots of questions about her past, her present and especially her future.
When we started the Breakfast Club we had juice, bread and jam. Now we can give our children a full continental breakfast and a proper start to the day! The good food we receive means that the Breakfast Club is very popular- about half the school comes, which has had a big impact on our attendance levels at school. 3 years ago we had 100 pupils on our persistent absence list. Now, we only have about 14.
On the 21st of November 2017, an idea was planted in Halston drive community room.
One such situation involved a young couple – we’ll call them P and Q – who lived in a chaotic way, whose benefits had stopped and they were sofa surfing/sleeping rough.
When R first joined the group his mood was low and he found it uncomfortable to interact with others. Initially the other group members found him difficult and were concerned about him coming to the sessions regularly.
At Kingsweston School we have been working closely with All-Aboard Watersports for 4 years. They have given our pupils – all of whom have an Autistic Spectrum Condition (many have additional needs as well) – the opportunity to experience something that would have seemed completely inaccessible to them, and challenge themselves in doing so.
Bristol Giving Day was launched this week to great acclaim as Quartet Community Foundation brought businesses, charities and the public sector together to address Bristol’s needs.
We’re delighted to announce that The Florist on Park Street are using their flower power to help people and are the first to sign up to do something fun and raise money for local good causes on Bristol Giving Day.
Arriving in a new city, in a new country, and learning a new language are just three of the challenges Siddiq and Sabir faced when they arrived in Bristol. A grant we made to Bristol Hospitality Network for £14,500 through a New Beginnings grant helped them provide welcome centres for Siddiq, Sabir and their fellow asylum seekers and refugees in Bristol.
Thanks to a grant through us Age UK Bristol were able to offer this local older person some support to get through a crisis period.
