Help keep our older neighbours connected from afar

Our teams are working tirelessly to keep neighbours active, connected and supported during this crisis. We're hosting virtual social clubs, setting up phone friendships, posting daily activities to older neighbours and more. 

But we need your help to do continue.

Our most inclusive programmes yet

As we carefully transition back to face-to-face, we’re excited that our programmes will include a mixture of face-to-face and remote programme options, which we’ve taken every precaution to ensure are Covid-safe.

Give the gift of friendship

Sharing time is precious – especially in our busy, fast-paced city. But 40% of older people say the TV is their main form of company, and young people are increasingly feeling disconnected too. By donating to Manchester Cares, you could help make our activities possible so that older and younger neighbours can share time and new experiences

Fancy a challenge?

From 5k fun runs to marathons, and swims to cycles, there's something for you to brave this year.

Celebrating our 100th Love Your Neighbour Friendship

by Vicky Harrold

This month Manchester Cares is celebrating our 4th birthday and we are also celebrating making our 100th Love Your Neighbour introduction. From our first introduction back in 2018 in Moston to our newest in Withington, through Love Your Neighbour, older and younger neighbours have collectively shared over 3000 visits and over 124 days of interaction across our wonderful city and we certainly think that is something to celebrate.
