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

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

Winter Wellbeing 2020-21

by Emily Groves

Over the last decade, North London Cares’ Winter Wellbeing project has ensured that older neighbours across Camden and Islington stay warm, safe, active and connected during the most isolating season. This year, as the coronavirus pandemic continues, our approach to our 10th Winter Wellbeing is going to have to look a little different.

"My Phone Family"

by Andy Naylor

"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


It's our birthday – North London Cares is nine!

by Alex Smith

Nine years ago, North London Cares opened spontaneously amid rioting in our communities. We did so because we recognised that isolation was a gateway into so many other problems in our community, and because connection was the route out. Nine years later, we're proud of what we've achieved.
