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

Over more than a decade, The Cares Family has brought together older and younger neighbours to reduce loneliness and build meaningful local connection – through North London Cares, South London Cares, Manchester Cares, Liverpool Cares and East London Cares. Our work has had a dramatic impact and we've learned a lot. That's why we're now also leading national efforts to help spur a ripple of community activity across the UK – to build a more connected age.

Our local charities

The Cares Family operates five local charities building intergenerational connection to reduce loneliness:

The magic of intergenerational connection is that the value goes both ways. As Emilia said of Sid, 92: “I’ve gained a friend and life coach. I’m given all the free advice a confused 25-year-old could need.” #IntergenerationalWeek
