Who we are
The Grateful Society helps older people to maintain dignity and independence.
Now in its 259th year, The Grateful Society is a Bristol charity which supports elderly people within the city and surrounding area. Whilst our support is primarily financial, we do also take time to regularly interact with our service providers to ensure that the funding we provide is properly used to the maximum benefit. This is essential when central and local government funding continues to reduce, while the elderly population continues to increase significantly. This cannot be ignored.
Already this year we have engaged with, and supported a further 3 day centres meaning we now support 20 centres across the region. Subsequently we have improved the lives of some 550 older people, through carefully considered investment of over £80,000.
Our ability to continue providing this critical support is dependent on our President’s Annual Appeal, which relies on help from the community now more than ever.
