BRISTOL SOCIAL GROUP is the Bristol branch of THE SOCIAL GROUP.  BRISTOL SOCIAL GROUP is a trading name of SOCIAL GROUP ENTERPRISES LTD.  THE SOCIAL GROUP is an independent social enterprise, funded entirely by subscriptions and donations. Our team of organisers draw just a modest salary and everything else goes on running costs and working hard to provide people with a great social life.

Over the years we have become a force for good in the local community, with a clear public benefit, providing a group of friends for people to go out and join in with and with us providing a ready-made social life for people to enjoy.  We have enabled a large number of people to have fun and make friends.  We have helped bring people together, with lots of friendships, relationships, marriages and families as a result.  We've made it possible for people to try new things, go new places, exercise social skills, improve interpersonal relationships, and build up confidence.  We've worked hard to eliminate the need for anyone to be lonely or isolated.  We've helped a lot of people following separation, divorce, illness, and bereavement. Bristol Social Group has proved ideal for people new to Bristol and looking to find their feet.  Bristol Social Group has become an important social network and business network, bringing the community together and stregthening bonds in the region. Bristol Social Group has been the perfect choice for people looking for more to do and for people to to it with.  We've provided friends and someone to talk to.  Along the way, we have also done a great deal to support good causes and raise money for charities.  

THE SOCIAL GROUP was founded in 1997 by Andrew Haglington.  We were the first to identify a need in society to enable people to connect, interact and socialise.  We were the first to put this in place utlising a printed magazine and the internet.  We are widely recognied as the inventors of social networking.  In 1997 we shortened the word socialising to social and named all things social...  Social group.  Social events.  Social networking.  Social media.  Social enterprise.  These are our phrases, now widely adopted and copied by many others.
