We are actively working with a number of organisations who share our concern about the elderly and our communities. If you are involved with an organisation which has synergy with us then please contact us to discuss how we might be able to work together.
Friends of the Elderly
Founded in 1905, Friends of the Elderly is one of the UK’s oldest charities supporting older people. Its vision is a society where all older people are treated with respect and have the opportunity to lead fulfilled lives. To achieve this, the registered national charity provides support for all older people, particularly those in need due to mental or physical frailty, isolation or poverty.
Friends of the Elderly delivers a range of personalised care and support services that are integrated into local communities. These include: care homes, day clubs, home support, befriending and grants. The charity also works to raise awareness about the issues affecting older people, particularly loneliness, and is encouraging everyone to get involved and make a difference through its Be a Friend campaign.
