Footwear Friends

Footwear Friends, formerly the Footwear Benevolent Society, is a charity which provides financial assistance to people who have worked in the Shoe Trade but have fallen on hard times. Established in 1836, we are the only charity dedicated solely to the support of those have served the footwear industry, whether in design, manufacture, distribution, retail or repair.

We are funded mainly by donations, as well as by special fundraising events run on behalf of Footwear Friends. We also have some sponsors within the trade.
