About Frailty Friends and Champions

Frailty Friends and Champions were fortunately funded by Brighterway charity in order to start this great work needed to standardise, grow and educate the community of Frailty Friends and Champions!

We encourage organisations to get in touch about how they could become part of this campaign and also how individuals can pledge to be a Frailty Friend in their own community, looking out for those living with Frailty.

Frailty Friends and Champions have not yet received any government funding for the campaign and have managed to maintain the work by charitable funding and   donations through Brighterway.

We are proud of the work we have achieved to date and know we could achieve so much more in the future with an aging population and an increasing rate of Frailty.
