Manchester Cares – be part of it

Manchester is a wonderful city, with history, influence, innovation and personality at its heart. There's always so much going on – from new music to new business to new people arriving all the time.

But the city we love is also growing and changing fast, and that can leave some people feeling anonymous, isolated and left behind. 

Manchester Cares exists to reduce loneliness amongst older and younger neighbours alike, to improve wellbeing, connection and power, and to bridge the gaps across social, generational and digital divides – so people feel part of our changing city rather than left behind by it.

September Social Clubs

Posted by Amy Saunders

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...).

From our End of Summer Picnic in Ancoats to cooking up a storm at Cooking Club in Hulme, as well as a 'chippy tea' with a difference at The Hip Hop Chip Shop and our very first Documentary Club, in the City Centre, there's something for everyone. 

Winter Wellbeing - from warm goods to winter grants, keeping neighbours warm across the city

Posted by Amy Saunders

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 billsshorter 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.
