About us

Cotswold Friends was established in 1978 as a community transport service. Since then it has expanded into Carer Respite and Befriending and developed a Community Activities Programme, including lunch clubs and social, activity and support groups.

We are based in The Moreton Area Centre, High Street, Moreton in Marsh, GL56 0AZ

There are 7 part-time members of staff and over 200 volunteers. In 2015 our services benefitted more than 1,800 older and vulnerable people in the north Cotswold community.

Overall management is the responsibility of the Cotswold Friends Board, which has 6 members, all of whom are trustees. The full Board meets 10 times a year, with additional meetings being held by sub-committees who have specific responsibilities, such as finance and fundraising, service development, and brand and marketing.
