Liverpool Cares is a community network of younger (people in their twenties and thirties) and older (over 65 years old) neighbours hanging out and helping each other out, to improve the confidence, resilience and skills of everyone involved.
They connect younger and older neighbours across social, generational and attitudinal lines – people that often organically don’t get the opportunity to meet – so that everyone feels part of, not left behind by, our rapidly changing city.
Liverpool Cares will be running social clubs every month across the Liverpool City Region. Social clubs offer a chance for young professionals and older neighbours to hang out together and share time, friendship and fun. Each month there will be different events including technology workshops, dances, pub clubs, film clubs, Desert Island discs evenings and cultural trips.
If you’re over 65…
They would love to hear from you! Or if you know someone aged over 65 who would be interested in finding out about free social activities across the Liverpool city region, call Liverpool Cares so they can tell you more on 0151 659 1789.
