Care Home Fundraising Resources

We are dedicated to ending loneliness and we need your help

We are committed to good fundraising practice, and we have subscribed to the voluntary fundraising regulator scheme for our care home fundraising resources.

We do not employ professional fundraisers to carry out fundraising on our behalf. We do not have doorstep fundraising.

If you have concerns that you may have been approached by a fraudulent doorstep fundraiser please report the incident to the police and to Action Fraud

If you have any questions or concerns our fundraising team can be reached on 020 7881 1169 or at

Run in the London Marathon 2021

We are delighted to let you know we have one place in the London Marathon 2021!

Grab this chance to take on a personal challenge while raising vital funds to help reduce social isolation amongst some of the most vulnerable older people we support. Be part of this iconic event and hear the crowds cheer you on while you run.

The older people we work with are relying on us now more than ever for the friendship, financial support, practical help and hope that Friends of the Elderly offers. Will you take on this challenge and help our services keep going and growing?

Training plan

The difference you can make by fundraising

£259 could help an older person become digitally connected; enabling those at risk of isolation to stay in touch with friends and family.

£500 could help us reach out to more older people willing for companionship; connecting them with groups and individuals in the community with similar interests.

£1,000 could pay for 4 winter warmth grants to keep older people warm and well.

£2,000 could train 8 volunteers who will chat, listen and ultimately build long lasting friendships with lonely older people

£5,000 could provide a financial lifeline to 19 older people in the form of one-off grants for mobility adaptions, washing machines, cookers and other basic necessities.


We really hope you join Team FotE!
