About us

Heart of BS13, supporting a healthy community

How we began and what we do now

We were founded in 1990 by a group of BS13 residents keen to address specific health problems through increased connection with the local environment.  Over the years, the organisation has widened its brief to include mental health support,  targeted nutrition and cooking activity and now a focus on social enterprise.  In 2020 Hartcliffe Health Environment Action Group became Heart of BS13 and a refreshed approach to the work was launched.  Our website takes you through the programmes we offer and how you can get involved, whether as a participant, a volunteer or a supporter.

Our team and board

We work towards at least 50% board and staff from the BS13 community and we’d like to introduce you to them.
