Babbers is a collaboration between Bristol Ageing Better and Ujima Radio. Ujima began in 2008 with a mandate to celebrate African and Caribbean cultures through music and informative talk. Ujima is committed to promoting diversity. The Radio offers a platform where groups under-represented in the media can be heard; they recognise that older people are one such group.
The Babbers Show is produced and presented by and for older people. It is supported by Bristol Ageing Better, which aims to reduce isolation and loneliness amongst people in Bristol as they get older. The Show presents a positive image of ageing and challenges stereotypes. It provides a space where the voices of older people can be heard.
