Empowering the elderly and building communities to promote mutual support networks

With the aim of combating the effects of the loneliness suffered by many elderly people, ”la Caixa” Foundation's Always Supported programme, in collaboration with various organisations and local authorities, was created as a response to the challenge of loneliness.


    We combat situations of loneliness, promoting supportive relationships and well-being among the elderly, empowering them and making them feel part of a society that's committed to them. We do this with three aims in mind:

    • To support the elderly and empower them to tackle their own loneliness.

    • To build strong community networks capable of fostering supportive relationships and mutual aid.

    • To raise public awareness of the importance of such relationships.


    The Always Accompanied programme is implemented by town councils and organisations in the following cities:

    Palma de Mallorca, Girona, Granada, Jerez, Logroño, Lleida, Malaga, Murcia, Pamplona, Sabadell, Santa Coloma de Gramenet, Tàrrega, Terrassa and Tortosa.
