As we enter a new year, and a new decade, we’re pleased to offer you all an update on our second Winter Wellbeing project, which helps older neighbours across the city of Liverpool stay warm, active and connected through the coldest months of the year. We’re about halfway through the project now, and though December is behind us we all know that the months ahead are often some of the coldest of the year these days!
2019 was a truly amazing year for Liverpool Cares. Not only did we see the growth of our network to over 700 older and younger neighbours, we felt the overwhelming generosity of the whole community. In our latest blog, Development Coordinator Rachael Forde gives thanks to all those who help Liverpool Cares grow in 2019.
We are buzzed to be a recipient of the Co-op local charitable causes in 2020.Development Coordinator Rachael Forde tells you how you, and your network, can help raise money for Liverpool Cares as a member of Co-op local food.
The more you eat, drink and are merry this year, you can support Liverpool Cares to tackle isolation and loneliness across the city.
We’ve had an incredible response to the first month of our Winter Wellbeing project, which helps older neighbours aged 65 and over stay warm, active and better connected across our wonderful city. In this blog our Outreach Coordinator Rachael will tell us more about two of the cracking scousers she’s been fortunate enough to meet through our targeted outreach in the first six weeks of this year’s project.
Each month we visit a different business in Liverpool with a group of our older neighbours for a "back to work" social club. We meet their staff and find out what it's like to work in modern-day workspaces. This week's blog focuses on past visits, what our neighbours gain from them and if there's potential for us to come and visit you at work soon!
Last week we launched our second Winter Wellbeing project that will help over 65’s to stay warm, active and connected over the winter months ahead. The project will see us delivering warm items, things like blankets, hats, coats, scarves and even hot water bottles, providing a little extra warmth for older people as we move into these colder months.
Rachael Treacher, our Outreach Coordinator, leads on this project. In this blog, she tells us more about some of the outreach work she’s been doing, and the older Scouse neighbours she’s met along the way.
