The Friends of the Elderly provide financial support to those most in need through their grant giving service, in order to help prevent many older people having to choice between heating their homes and other essentials.  Their one-off grants can be used for the following:

  • Replacing essential items such as basic furniture, flooring and household appliances
  • Utility bills
  • Home repairs and adaptations
  • Mobility aids

They also have regular allowances to support those whose incomes do not meet their basic cost of living.  Referrals to the service can be made by local organisations such as:

  • Home improvement agencies
  • Tenancy support workers
  • Social services
  • Citizens Advice
  • Age UK
