Helping young people to aspire and older people to thrive

What we do for older people

The Foundation’s Objects are focused on helping and supporting isolated older people in the City.

Over the past 12 months we have achieved the following initiatives for older people in Westminster:

  • Co-ordinated nearly 600 events nationally in support of Silver Sunday to celebrate older people and reduce their social exclusion. Over 90% of those attending were trying new things and meeting new people.
  • Held a Tea Dance for over 1,000 older people, enjoyed also by Police Cadets who helped us to host the event, thus contributing to inter-generational activities.
  • Distributed over 300 Christmas hampers to the most isolated, disadvantaged and impoverished people in the City.
  • Raised more funds than ever before, just over £1m, enabling us to fund our growing programmes in support of older people in the City.
