Living fulfilled lives

Steve Allen, Chief Executive says in the Friends of the Elderly annual review that the charity has refreshed its vision, mission and values to reflect the changes to the way people want and need care and support. They have begun to implement a plan for the future, which is to continue to provide high quality services and activities that are both personalised to individual needs and integrated with local communities.

“With change comes challenge and we have had to make some difficult decisions that have led to the closure of some services, most of them publicly funded. We are now focusing our resources to better support people in later life with services and activities that are impactful and financially sustainable”.  

“Although it has been a challenging year, there has been a lot to celebrate as well. Our care homes are delivering great care, which is being recognised in their CQC reports, and are welcoming more groups and individuals to activities and events with our residents. Our community services are adapting to meet the changing needs of users and our free programmes remain a lifeline to older people affected by loneliness or financial worries. All of this, of course, could not be achieved without the dedication and support of our wonderful staff and volunteers; I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of them.”
