Henbury & Brentry

Welcome to the Henbury & Brentry Hub

The Henbury & Brentry Hub works in partnership with Bristol Charities. It is ran by an Advisory Group made up of local older people who with the support of a LinkAge Community Development Worker, plan, organise and promote activities for those over 55 to attend.

get involved


We are always looking for enthusiastic and knowledgeable individuals to join the Henbury & Brentry Advisory Groups to help make a difference to the local community. LinkAge Advisory groups are made up of local, older people who provide great insight into their community, helping to inform and advise LinkAge on what can be done to help build community spirit through activities and events. 

Do you love to paint, have a passion for singing or perhaps you're a keen cook or gardener? If so, why not share your skills with us? This could be setting up an activity or volunteering at an existing one, there is always a way to get involved.

working in partnership

We would like to say a big thank you to our local partner Bristol Charities for helping to launch and shape Henbury & Brentry as a LinkAge Hub.

Bristol Charities' mission is to enhance the quality of life for older people living in our communities. We make a difference to the lives of older people by supporting them to live independently.

Our work ranges from:

  • Providing excellent quality Almshouse accommodation with support on site in a safe community setting.
  • Providing Day Care and Daytime opportunities through our day centres and our Centre for Dementia in Brentry, Bristol.
  • Giving to those in need through individual grants to other community organisations, and through providing mobility aids and adaptions to vulnerable people.
