The Challenge

Humans are social animals who live longer and live better when part of a strong family and  kinship group

 

Today a rapidly growing number of men are living longer but not necessarily better.

This can be the result of:

  • poor health and/or disability.

  • having few close friends.

  • separation from family.

  • a poor social life.

  • social isolation.

  • social anxiety.

  • living alone

The number of men aged over 65 who live alone in the UK is set to rise to 65% to over 1.5 million by 2030. The challenge is real, growing and requires an effective solution know.

 

Our Mission - Support older men to live longer & live better by helping them improve their social lives.

 

Our Vision - End social isolation in older men

 

Our Values - Act with kindness, empathy & respect
