There are many ways in which to support the Campaign to End Loneliness, including philanthropic support from individuals and trusts and foundations as well as companies.    

We urgently need your help to tackle loneliness and reach as many people as possible across the UK.

Donate as an individual

Our research has found that more than half of UK adults feel that it’s been a long time since they made a new friend.

The Campaign to End Loneliness is trying to change that. You can help us.

Make a one-off or monthly donation so we can make sure that older people have the friendship and support they need.

By giving just £5 per month, you’ll support a campaign that aims to make loneliness in later life a thing of the past.

You can support the Campaign and take on a challenge event like the London marathon, Three Peaks Challenge or a skydive.

Business Engagement

There are many ways in which businesses can support the Campaign, from event sponsorship, cause-related marketing, running industry sector sports days, to annual donations.

We are looking to encourage businesses to partner with us, and help look at easing the loneliness of their staff, clients and customers.

We work with companies on a bespoke basis, creating a programme of engagement that tackles loneliness and works for the business involved.

If you would like to know more, please contact Rachael Ferguson.

Trusts and Foundations

We are supported by a number of significant annual grants from trusts and foundations that include: The Big Lottery Fund, The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, The John Ellerman Foundation, The Tudor Trust, and Independent Age. We are indebted to some of them for supporting us each year.

In addition to seeking funding to cover a proportion of our core annual costs, we also have a number of projects that we would like to pilot or deliver. We want to help end loneliness for an even greater number of older people.

If you run a Trust or a Foundation, whether personal, business, or charitable, Robert Hacking would love to hear from you, and match your interests, aims and objectives to those of the Campaign.

We can also help find matched funding where appropriate to maximise the impact your donation can have. Please contact him via or via the fundraising phone line number given below.


Rachael  and Robert are here to help. If you have questions or queries, or would like more information about funding opportunities please contact them direct via or via 020 3865 3908.

Thank you for your support.
