Staying connected in a disconnecting time

As social distancing continues in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have adapted our programmes to help older and younger neighbours stay connected in a disconnecting time.

Keeping the generations connected, even from afar

Our teams are working tirelessly to help older and younger neighbours to have someone to turn to, and someone to talk to, during the Covid-19 crisis. Neighbours are connecting online, by phone and by post.

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 North London Cares, you could help make our activities possible so that older and younger Londoners can share time and new experiences

Neighbours are doing it for themselves!

by Andy Naylor

Although we are delighted to be back running in-person social clubs, our digital and phone club programme is still as important to us as ever. We want to use this space to thank the amazing older and younger neighbours who have run digital clubs for us over the last year, they were all fantastic and we learnt so much from you!

Tackling, loneliness, leaving no one behind

by Imogen Duffin

"I've never met Valerie or Nish or Tony in person, but I feel like I have. It's given me a connection at a time when that's been hard to come by. It's really funny but I think of them as my phone family now and I look forward to what we are going to chat about next!"- Cheryl
