Funders and Partners

Our work is made possible by the generous support, advice and funding of various partners in our community. We are grateful for the support of the following businesses, foundations, trusts, community organisations and local authorities.

The Big Lottery

In 2015 North London Cares was awarded 6-year contract with Ageing Better in Camden – a project of the Big Lottery. This will enable us to deliver hundreds of Social Clubs in Camden over the coming years. We're also part of the 'Accelerating Ideas' programme, helping us to expand our model to other parts of the UK.
