About us

NBFA Assisting the Elderly is a small registered charity based in central London.

We were founded in 1957 and we work with older people and associated organisations all around the UK.

One of our first charitable activities was distributing free television sets to disadvantaged older people so that friends and neighbours would come together to socialise.

Our work has changed since then, but we still work hard to provide lonely or isolated older people with opportunities to socialise, meet new companions, and build long lasting and mutually beneficial friendships with each other.

We are committed to increasing the independence and confidence of older people to make positive changes in their own lives.
