Friends of the Elderly

Giving older people the opportunity to live fulfilled and respected lives

Friends of the eldely

Friends of the Elderly’s vision is a society where all older people are treated with respect and have the opportunity to lead fulfilled lives.  As a national charity with over 100 years’ experience, we provide support for all older people, particularly those in need due to mental or physical frailty, isolation or poverty.

In order to achieve our vision, we provide a number of quality services to enhance the lives of older people. These include: care homes, day clubs, home support, befriending and grants.

The whole person is at the centre of everything we do and our work is informed by listening to the older people we come into contact with. As experts in our field, we know that loneliness is a growing issue and have seen the devastating impact it has on older people. We also know that the issue of loneliness cannot be solved by us alone, which is why we’re asking everyone to Be a Friend and help change the future of loneliness.
