There are so many fun and easy ways to raise money to help enrich the lives of older people. And as part of Team Abbeyfield, we're here to support you every step of the way.

Fundraise for Abbeyfield

In 1956, our founder Richard Carr-Gomm recognised that many older people were living alone and felt isolated in their communities. He wanted to provide them with a safe and secure home where they could both build friendships and find support. Today, this charitable ethos is still at the heart of everything we do.

Together, you can help us continue to enrich the lives of older people up and down the country.

Every year, our amazing supporters hold their own fundraising events to make our work possible. And you can too. Whether you want to fundraise on your own, with friends, work colleagues or faith group, we've got everything you need to start fundraising for Abbeyfield.
