The Cares Family helps people find connection and community in a disconnected age

Our programmes help older and younger people to reduce loneliness together, so they can feel part of a changing world rather than left behind by it. And they help everyone to build action, voice and power.

Our local charities

The Cares Family currently operates five branches, each run at the local level:

Manchester Cares

Manchester Cares was founded in 2017 and works in the great city of Manchester to reduce loneliness amongst younger and older people alike and build community across the generations.

As we go into a new lockdown, building connection across the generations will be so important. Watch our new video, made with @People_United and Steampunk Bob, about how those connections can make a difference – through shared friendship and fun, solace and solidarity:

As we’re asked to stay home again, our communities of older and younger neighbours sharing solace will stay together – as they have done all year. Online, on the phone, by post and with our partners, we’ll help people stay connected in disconnecting times. #AloneTogether
