About Lions Befrienders

Established in 1995, Lions Befrienders (LB) has more than 26 years of experience in befriending and caring for seniors in order for them to age in place in the community. Over the years, LB strives to address the varied needs of more than 86,000 seniors by adopting a senior-centric approach in its eldercare services. Leveraging on the support of some 1,500 regular volunteers, we actively engage more than 7,800 seniors via a spectrum of integrated eldercare service from preventive to intervention through comprehensive programmes, to provide holistic care and ensure that seniors are socially, emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually engaged.

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 Active Ageing Centres, 3 Cluster Support, 2 Senior Group Homes and Home Personal Care services. Our Befriending arm extends befriending services to socially isolated seniors. Today, our service boundaries have extended to about 35,000 seniors.

LB will achieve its vision and mission in the next two years by:
