Foundation for Active Community Engagement (FACE) is a registered youth & community charity based in Filton, running regular activities for people of all ages and backgrounds across the wider Bristol & South Glos areas.

Our focus is on supporting people to improve their lives and the community around them; through better skills, knowledge, opportunities, access to wider support, and making a positive difference by being 'active' in their community.

Covid 19

The work of FACE is very different at the moment as all of our group sessions are cancelled following Public Health England and government guidance on stopping the spread of Covid 19.

We are providing a range of resources and outreach activities during this time.

Community Store & Jigsaw Loaning is open Monday-Fridays 10am-12pm

We are also coordinating a volunteer network and running a dedicated community helpline for those who are shielding to get access to community support, this is open Mon-Friday 10am-12pm and 6.30-8.30pm on 07511 985130 or

Please see the dedicated Covid19 page for resources for you and your family during this time.
