Our Campaign Story

ends 11 Sep 2022, 11:59 PM

Singapore is expected to undergo rapid population ageing. By 2030, almost a million Singaporeans will be aged 65 and above.

While they may not necessarily be alone, socially isolated elderly typically do not have anyone to turn to for companionship and have little interactions with others, causing them to spend their golden years all by themselves.

Lions Befrienders is an organisation that envisions a nation where every senior is active, healthy and happy. Their mission is to provide friendship and care for seniors to age in place with community participation, enabling them to enjoy meaningful and enriching lives.

With your help, these seniors will be able to spend the rest of their years without feeling lonely. Thank you for your support!

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.
