We are a small charity making a big impact. It costs £190,000 a year for us to support around 1,000 older neighbours in South Yorkshire and Derbyshire. That means for £200 we can provide an older neighbour with a weekly social connection for a whole year.
Your support will make a massive difference to the lives of vulnerable and isolated older people.

What our corporate partners have to say
Our team voted b:friend as our charity of the year for 2022/2023. It’s been an amazing opportunity for us to not only raise money for such a great local cause, but our team have also been able to give their time and come together with local elderly neighbours to support b:friend in their mission to end loneliness amongst the elderly in our community. Having a sense of belonging is a core part of our culture at Strata, and b:friend is an organisation that does just that amongst the loneliest group in our community.

B:friend is lucky to have worked with fantastic supporters over the years who provided vital funds to help combat loneliness and social isolation.
