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 main focus is on supporting *vulnerable* people to improve their lives through better skills, knowledge , opportunities and access to wider support. (*often due to age or impairment)

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 Swap Shop & Loaning library are on Monday-Fridays 10am-12pm and 6.30-8.30pm. 

We are also running a dedicated community helpline for those who are self-isolating to get access to community support, this is open Mon-Friday 10am-12pm and 6.30-8.30pm on 0117 9691938 or

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