What We Do
BDSP is here to help take the pressure off older adults who are experiencing loneliness. Our vision is to see isolated and vulnerable older people, from across the Bradford District, cared for and connected. We support those aged 60+ at risk of losing their independence, and regularly engage those with poor health, dementia and complex needs. We also run a variety of social and learning groups open to seniors throughout the week at various venues.
The best thing about BDSP is...
‘The fact we can approach you by phone, email or text – if people need help it’s one place to enquire, hoping you can give advice on who else to contact.’
'Knowing that one day each week a volunteer will call. For most people these have been the most lonely times I can imagine. Always been involved in groups myself, friendships mean a great deal.’
