About Us

Everything you need to know about the people behind Stitch

What Is Stitch?

Stitch is a community which helps anyone over 50 find the companionship they need.

Our grand vision is to help improve the lives of older adults in every country around the world and provide an answer to the social isolation and loneliness that everyone ultimately faces at some point in their lives, whether they’re seeking friendship, romance, or anything in between.

What makes Stitch completely unique is that it’s a community, one that’s been built by members, for members.

That means everything at Stitch is a result of the efforts of Stitch members, whether that’s local activities and events designed to bring people together, online discussions with other members around the world, group travel events, helping with member verification, even volunteering their time to help grow the community. Our members know what it’s like to need companionship, and ultimately everyone has a role to play in making life better for each other.

Why don’t you join us?

The People Behind Stitch

Apart from the product development done by Stitch’s very small technology team, most of what happens on Stitch is driven by our many Stitch Community Champions, who are located in Stitch communities around the world.

(Becoming a Community Champion is easy, by the way: you just need to volunteer!)

Below are just some — but by no means all — of the members responsible for getting Stitch to where it is today. If you’re a verified Stitch member, you can click on each photo to contact each person directly.

    Glad to come across stitch.You sound like people of integrity who can solve my loneliness problem.IM an adult lady of 45 but I do not know whether you operate in Uganda.Let me know about that and we progress on the issue.

      Hi Jane,

      Thanks for the kind words. Unfortunately Stitch is only for members who are aged 50 and over. We don’t currently have a community in Uganda but maybe we will by the time you turn 50! Best of luck with everything.

      Regards,
      Andrew.

    When I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify
    me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now
    on whenever a comment is added I recieve four emails with the same comment.
    Perhaps there is a means you are able to remove me from
    that service? Thanks!
