Archway was founded by Paul Hawgood in January 1982. Based within the city of Oxford, it works to help relieve some of the distress caused by loneliness, irrelevant of the cause but including bereavement.

They are committed to serving those hurt by loneliness irrespective of religion, culture or background. Archway’s inspiration and values are derived from the Christian faith.

Archway provides opportunities in Oxford and Abingdon to meet up with others and offer a varied programme of entertainment which plays a part in the interaction and encouragement of engagement with social activities. Befrienders visit those who cannot get out to our social events.
