Pilgrims’ Friend Society is a Christian charity committed to:

  • Supporting older people through the provision of care in our homes
  • Providing support and housing for independent living and
  • Serving as an advocate from a Christian perspective on issues affecting older people.

The Society was established in 1807 (then known as the Aged Pilgrim’s Friend Society) by a group of Christians who were concerned about “the aged and infirm Christian poor”. The Society has developed from these early days and now reaches out to Christian and non-Christian older people.

Our history is immensely significant and we respect it by remaining committed to the guiding Christian principles of our predecessors that provided the foundation for our charitable work. We want these principles to be at the heart of every trustee’s and employee’s attitude to their work for the Society.

The purpose of this Statement of Christian Ethos is to clarify for our beneficiaries, supporters and staff the importance we assign to the Christian motivation that underpins the Society, the values that should characterise it and the practical consequences of both. The statement also provides a reference point for those responsible for producing and implementing the Society’s policies and procedures.
