Our Campaign Story

ends 11 Sep 2022, 11:59 PM

Hello! Team Horizon is a Youth for Causes (YFC) project working with Lions Befrienders. We noticed that an increasing number of seniors in our society feel a sense of disconnection and find that they have no place in society. As such, we hope to reduce social isolation amongst seniors and enhance social cohesion by bridging the intergenerational gap in our society.

Every dollar counts. A small donation goes a long way! Any donations will be greatly appreciated and will help to support Lions Befrienders' programmes and services for the seniors!

About The Charity

Established in 1995, LB has more than 25 years of experience in befriending and caring for seniors in order for them to age in place in the community. Over the years, LB strives to address the varied needs of more than 86,000 seniors by adopting a senior-centric approach in its eldercare services. Leveraging on the support of some 1,000 regular volunteers, we actively engage more than 6,000 at-risk seniors via a spectrum of integrated eldercare service from preventive to intervention through comprehensive programmes, including social, emotional, mental and physical, to improve their quality of life.

Amid the challenges in the eldercare landscape, LB undertakes constant review and adjustment to its programmes and services. Under our Community Outreach arm, we currently operate 10 Active Ageing Centres, 3 Cluster Support, 2 Senior Group Homes and Home Personal Care services. Our Befriending arm extends island-wide befriending services to socially isolated seniors. For its exemplary disclosure and corporate governance practices, LB was conferred the Charity Transparency Award by the Charity Council in 2016 and 2017.
