A bit about us

Good Company, right on your doorstep

We started The Good Company People as a not-for-profit organisation in 2020 with the aim of helping over 65's enjoy more independent, fulfilling, lives for longer.

 

It all began with our Co-Founder, Lucy’s much-loved mum Hazel, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease Dementia at 69. Lucy’s goal was to help her mum to continue doing all the things she enjoyed before diagnosis like sewing, baking, and arts and crafts, and give her dad a regular break from caring.

 

Seeing how much Hazel enjoyed spending time with like-minded individuals and feeling stimulated by continuing with the things she loved, Lucy and her team could see how others living with dementia could benefit from regular Good Company too. And thus, The Good Company People was born! 

 

Since then, we have set up Good Company services across Crowborough, Forest Row, Mayfield, Hartfield, Rotherfield, Groombridge, and Wadhurst. Our mission is to provide fun, stimulating Good Company right on your doorstep.

Our values

Respect and trust

We believe that trust and respect form the strongest foundations of all good relationships.

Always curious

We will never stop exploring and discovering new ways to experience Good Company.
