Life changes

Wiltshire, Avon and Gloucestershire

Big changes in personal circumstances can leave people struggling to cope. That’s why the Gloucester Life Changes project is offering older people in Gloucester some support to help them regain their confidence and independence.

Gloucester Life Changes is funded by the Big Lottery. The British Red Cross is leading the project, working in partnership with Age UK Gloucestershire and Cruse Bereavement Care. Together we are helping people who are over 65 years old and are isolated or struggling to cope after a significant life change such as bereavement, retirement or job loss, divorce, family or health changes.

We offer up to 12 weeks of free support tailored to each person, with the aim of helping them regain a sense of health and wellbeing, confidence and independence.

Our teams can provide weekly befriending visits, practical support, financial advice, access to computer and cookery classes, bereavement support, activity clubs and signposting to local organisations and groups.
