Innovations in health and social care - The Cares Family, North London Cares, South London Cares, Manchester Cares
Loneliness and isolation; social and generational divides.
Community networks of young professionals and older neighbours hanging out and helping one another in our rapidly changing cities.
73% of older people say their isolation is reduced; 81% feel better connected to others; 86% are more able to appreciate the world; older people say they have more people to rely on and a closer sense of community.
Reduce loneliness and isolation of younger and older people alike; improve neighbours' confidence, skills, wellbeing, connection, self-worth and power; bring people together across social, generational, digital, cultural and attitudinal divides.
North London Cares – Camden and Islington; South London Cares –Southwark and Lambeth; Manchester Cares – the city of Manchester.
