Lions Befrienders (LB) - Connecting Seniors, Enriching Lives
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. LB strives to address the varied needs of more than 20,000 seniors by adopting a senior-centric approach in its eldercare services. Leveraging on the support of some 1,000 volunteers, we actively engage more than 6,000 at-risk seniors through LB's Befriending and Community Outreach services. 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, 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.
