Change the lives of 2,000 older and vulnerable people in our community.
Cotswold Friends has been providing critical services in the North Cotswolds for 40 years, thanks to the volunteering and donations of local people. The aim of our charity is to combat loneliness and isolation. We support independent living and improve the health, wellbeing and social connectivity of more than 2,000 people.
Your donation means we can continue to provide these four integrated services to our local community:
8,800 journeys per year ensure 1,200 people get to medical, practical or social appointments.
More than 660 people participate in 21 community activity and lunch groups each month.
120 lonely people receive weekly visits to ensure they don’t feel isolated or forgotten. Local students visit lonely residents of care homes.
30 full-time carers receive up to 4 hours of critical respite every week to take a much-needed break.
