Welcome to Archway


“The whole purpose of Archway is to be alongside those who feel hurt by loneliness, to serve by offering support, friendship and a listening ear.”
- Paul S. Hawgood, Founder of The Archway Foundation

Loneliness is an experience many of us may go through at various points in our lives. Feelings of loneliness affect people of all ages and backgrounds.

The Archway Foundation was established in Oxford in 1982 to help relieve some of the real distress caused by loneliness. We connect those feeling alienated with a diverse group of volunteers, many of whom know for themselves how damaging loneliness can be.

Archway channels energy into action.
