Liverpool Cares is a community network of younger and older neighbours, hanging out and helping each other out. We bring people together to share time, laughter and friendship, learning new skills and getting people to feel better connected in our rapidly changing city.
Each month they hold different FREE events including technology workshops, dances, pub clubs, film clubs, Desert Island discs evenings and cultural trips. They also have business visits, where younger neighbours invite their older neighbours into their place of work to give them an insight into the modern workplace.
All of their events are hosted by people in their twenties and thirties who want to meet older scouse neighbours, share skills and learn new ones, all whilst making new friends in the community!
Please call Abbie on 0151 659 1789 if you’d like any more information, are unsure how to get to the clubs from your home, or if you’d like to book onto any of the clubs.
