Lions Befrienders will be holding its Charity Golf event on 8 March 2019, Friday, at Singapore Island Country Club (Island Course). We would like to invite you to join us in this charity event and to help fight social isolation amongst the seniors in Singapore.

Singapore is one of the fastest ageing societies in the world. By 2030, one in four will be aged 65 and above. It is projected that one in every three elderly needs some form of eldercare service. The dependency ratio will hit 2.3 in 2030 compared to 4.7 in 2016 and 6.9 in 2006.

Through this event, we can provide an array of activities to help more seniors lead a meaningful and quality life. We hope to raise awareness, of the lonely and vulnerable seniors in the community, and the importance of extending a hand of friendship to support them. Please refer to our website for more details.

If you have any queries pertaining to our event, please contact Ms Lim Li Na at 9720 8361 or via email at [email protected]

Your support will enable Lions Befrienders to end social isolation amongst our seniors, empowering them to live active, healthy & happy lives in our community. On behalf of our seniors, we sincerely thank you for your kind 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 Senior Activity 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.
