Description of Organization

“Established in 1995, Lions Befrienders (LB) is a voluntary welfare organization dedicated to providing holistic care and support to help seniors age healthily in place with community participation, enabling them to enjoy purposeful and meaningful lives. LB engages over 11,000 seniors via a spectrum of integrated eldercare services catering to their social, emotional, mental, physical and spiritual needs. We have a staff strength of 130 with more than 800 regular volunteers to provide these services and programmes. Our mission is to provide friendship and care for seniors to age in place with community participation, enabling them to enjoy meaningful and enriching lives.


Intended use of funds through the YFC programme

The funds will be used towards activities that focus on developing and maintaining good mental and social wellbeing, encouraging seniors to stay socially connected; and programmes that will encourage lifelong learning and empower seniors to stay independent and connected to the world and loved ones.


Engaging and involving the YFC participants

All volunteers are welcome to visit and be part of the activities at any of our 10 Active Aging Centres. The YFC teams can curate activities and programmes they would like to do with our seniors too.
