Older neighbour Tony shares some picks from his great music collection. This selection features positive vibes in a R&B style. At a time when the world is practising social distancing due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the selection of songs is intended to uplift, connect and empower.
Hi all! I'd like to share a bit on what it's been like joining the Manchester Cares family, a wonderful group of younger and older neighbours supported by a top level team, all working together to tackle social isolation and loneliness.
This month we've got everything from a Book Club with the lovely team at Penguin Books, a live theatre performance and, of course, our extra special third birthday bash. 🎈🎉 Read more to find out all about the activities we have in for November.
Older neighbour Tony shares some picks from his great music collection.
This selection features music for the Now Generation.
'The first song is from 2016, but all the other songs are from this year, which just goes to show that, even in these uncertain times, creative people are still being creative.'
The seasons are changing, and so is our approach to outreach.
During the last six months, we’ve all felt loneliness. We’ve not been able to embrace loved ones, celebrate birthdays or dance at weddings. We’ve not been allowed to grieve at funerals, visit care homes or even share a smile with a stranger from behind a mask. These restrictions have affected older and younger people alike – but we know that many older people in our community have found them particularly hard.
As further restrictions are put in place to curb the threat of coronavirus, we will be adapting our outreach to help better connect our communities.
