Our Charity

As a charity you can trust we are in care for the right reasons – not for profit.

96p in every £1 spent is put towards the day to day care of our residents – and all that entails.

We should never forget our older generation formed our modern way of living. It’s our duty to care for them as they have already given so much to society.

We believe that older people should never experience loneliness and isolation, and should have every opportunity to live their lives with dignity and respect.

Together, with fundraising, we can improve the lives of more people in Gloucestershire with the care they need and deserve.

Why we need support

Our growing elderly population need us now more than ever.

A third of our residents have little or no means of personally funding their much needed care. As a charity we financially support around 80 residents and subsidise their fees to the amount of £1.5 million a year. This equates to around £18,750 per resident per annum. Through this subsidy and our ‘home for life’ pledge, we will never ask a resident to leave our group of care homes for financial reasons.

How you can support us

Any donations or fundraising large or small will contribute to enhancing all of our residents’ experience and support those residents with little or no means. Here are some ideas:

Make a donation

In memory donation or funeral collection

Leave a legacy in your Will

Charity partnerships with local companies or community groups

Sponsorship

Grants to fund projects in our care homes and community hubs

Fundraise for us – enter an challenge event or organise your own charity event

Fundraising

You can be as creative as you like and can be done on your own or with a group. Do a personal challenge or enter an organised event and raise money through sponsorship. Hold a work or community bake sale, raffle, team quiz or sports tournament. We can help you – with ideas, inspiration of events to do, support with promoting your sponsorship, help you set up a Justgiving page, and provide you with tools such as a sponsorship form, poster and t-shirt.

Whichever way you can support, we would love to hear from you.

What Legacy will you leave?

Lilian Faithfull Care if forever indebted to a number of local supporters and past residents who have remembered our charity in their will. Some legators have specified how they wanted their gift to be spent (such as providing a new piece of equipment for the home they enjoyed living in, or a staff outing as a way of saying ‘thank you’). Others have left a more general legacy for the benefit of the Charity to use at its discretion.

However you want to help, we promise that every penny we receive will be used to provide a ‘Home for Life’ for future generations. If you can remember Lilian Faithfull Care in your Will (after you have taken care of your friends, family and loved ones) your legacy will be a gift that will have a positive impact for years to come.
