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

Fancy a challenge?

If you want to go the extra mile for North London Cares, check out our upcoming challenge events.

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