Love Your Neighbour is our one-to-one friendship programme. We introduce younger and older neighbours in Camden and Islington, to share time, laughter, and joy together over the phone, in-person, or a mix of both. Neighbours generally catch up for about an hour once a week for company and conversation.
Bouchra and Rosie, our Love Your Neighbour Coordinators, aim to create genuine, long-lasting friendships through a flexible programme that allows organic friendship to flourish between older and younger neighbours. We match people based on their proximity to each other and, where we can, shared interests. Often, friends help each other discover new interests too! Where and how often matches meet is up to them, but Bouchra and Rosie are in regular contact with all of our matches to hear stories, and feedback, and to provide support along the way.
Each friendship on the programme is unique and different – some neighbours head out to explore north London’s coffee shops and museums, others enjoy staying in, watching their favourite films or TV shows together or just having a cup of tea and a chat.
If you would like to get involved, make a referral or simply hear more about the programme, please sign up here or chat with Bouchra or Rosie on 020 7118 3838.
