It was so hard for so long. I had nowhere to turn and you rescued me.
There is exceptional demand for the care and support we provide. Regular income from our supporters allows us to continue reaching out to those who have nowhere else to turn to.
We promise to always use your donation where it is needed the most so your gift will have the biggest impact.
With each gift you are choosing to remember an older person experiencing loneliness, poverty or age related conditions, including dementia, and give them a future they deserve.
For over 100 years we have been supporting people and have adapted to meet the changing needs of society. From providing ‘Penny Dinners’ after the first World War to offering vital support during the recent Coronavirus pandemic, Friends of the Elderly has proven to be a lifeline for many.
Our vision is clear. We want to give older people the opportunity to live fulfilled lives.
We couldn’t achieve so much without our wonderful supporters who donate and fundraise.
The Edward Gostling Foundation has pledged to match fund Friends of the Elderly’s grants funding from 2018 for a 5 year period, to the value of £100,000 per year.
Every pound donated to our grants service therefore will be doubled and have twice the impact!
“Our match funding of Friends of the Elderly’s grant giving over the last five years was a great success and in March 2022, Trustees took the decision to award them a Deed of Gift. This Gift which will secure our further support for the coming 10 years, gives Friends of the Elderly confidence and the ability to plan ahead. Our two organisations have a great relationship and we are confident our funding is being put to the best possible use in helping vulnerable elderly people. We have regular contact and receive feedback on the impact of the grants they make and it is always good to hear how, together, we are improving lives.”
