Now in its 3rd year, our Winter Wellbeing project runs from October to March and involves reaching out to the residents of the 12 neighbourhoods in Manchester, who are 65 and over, to make sure they have what they need to keep warm, active and connected during the coldest months of the year.
A year into Audrey and Sinead's friendship we caught up with them to see why they’re so sure their friendship will carry on for a long time to come.
At Manchester Cares, we love partnering with local businesses across the city centre so that neighbours can share time, company and conversation – and learn something new at the same time. In our latest blog we talk about our partnership with Pernod Ricard UK.
We chatted to Liz, to get to know her better and find out why she loves Manchester Cares.
The Cares Family is seeking a Director of Development (Maternity Cover), to drive and adapt our national fundraising strategy until March 2021.
We've got lots of fun Social Clubs coming up in September to help keep the sunshine with us (metaphorically-speaking, as I'm currently looking out of the window at the pouring rain...).

For many of us, winter is a time to get the woolly blankets out, cosy up on the sofa with pals and a cup of tea and binge watch Stranger Things.
But for many others, winter is a time of high heating bills, shorter days and icy pavements which can make getting out daunting. On top of this, having little or no connection to local people and streets that are rapidly changing can feel alienating. It can be the most isolating and worrying time of the year.
