Formby Befriending Scheme

Allen Lane Foundation

We’re very grateful to the Allen Lane Foundation for funding received in both 2019 and 2020. The Foundation aims include reducing isolation, stigma, and discrimination with the purpose of making a lasting difference to people’s lives.

Sir Allen Lane was a publisher who founded Penguin Books in 1934 and the Foundation itself was formed in 1966. 2 of Sir Allen’s granddaughters are trustees.
