Pilgrims' Friend Society general fund Donate Fundraise When Pilgrim’s Friend Society was established in 1807, it was out of concern for what was then termed “the aged and infirm Christian poor”. By donating to Pilgrims' Friend Society today you are helping provide Christian care and support for a rapidly ageing population. We provide care for older people in our homes and we need donations to help us develop new approaches (such as integrated dementia care) and to improve the quality and number of our homes. We then use what we have learned about care to inspire and equip churches and individuals to work with older people in the community through conferences, training and resources. Our mission is to ensure every older person can continue to thrive in their later years, whatever physical, emotional or mental challenges they may be facing. If you want to be part of shaping such a future, please support us - all donations large or smaller, are very much appreciated.
