Home Instead Charities were founded by Home Instead, the UK’s leading provider of home care. Our mission is to end loneliness for ageing adults.

We exist to bring happiness and joy into the lives of our ageing population through peer support lunch clubs, art clubs and music therapy groups. We want a world where ageing adults aren’t just surviving, they are thriving!

A massive thank you to the team of 19 runners who took to London’s streets at the weekend (Sunday 3rd April), raising an impressive £18,700 for Home Instead Charities UK, in the London Landmarks Half Marathon!

Regular Giving Option

We often talk about making sure our ageing adults have access to basic needs; a home, food, heating, lighting, transport and healthcare. We all need these things but without having good mental and physical wellbeing and happiness in our lives surely we’re all just existing. We need more to truly thrive, no matter our age.

New! Sporting Events and Challenges

We support community groups all over the UK with grants to fund activities that support well-being or programmes to reduce and/or prevent isolation and loneliness.

“Thank you for filling the black hole.”
  • More people are living longer
  • The likelihood of being very unwell, or being disabled increases with age.
  • We are all living longer so can expect to spend a lot of time not feeling well and needing support

Loneliness can create physical health problems.

  • Loneliness increases the risk of dementia.
  • Loneliness increases the risk of cardio-vascular disease.
  • 60% of people in care homes have a mental health condition.
£1 invested in tackling loneliness can save £3 in health costs.
