North London Cares is a community network of young professionals and older neighbours, hanging out and helping one in our rapidly changing city.
North London is a place of social extremes. The most connected people in Britain – young professionals working in law, media, PR, fashion – can live next-door to older neighbours with plenty of roots but few connections.
That is ultimately corrosive for our society. Older and younger neighbours have so much to gain from one another – in friendship, wisdom, humour, personality, play and an understanding of local and global changes.
Through our activities, North London Cares reduces isolation and loneliness in older neighbours and younger neighbours alike; improves the confidence, wellbeing, resilience and power of our older neighbours; and bridges generational, social, attitudinal and digital divides.
