In her latest blog, Development Coordinator, Rachael Forde describes how Liverpool Cares navigated fundraising and her fresh understanding of ‘Togetherness’ when connecting communities in 2020.
“Life goes on no matter what” - Jeanette (65).
In disconnecting times, listening, hearing, and connecting with older neighbours has never been so important. In her latest blog, Outreach Coordinator Rachael talks about the ways Liverpool Cares has been helping to support older neighbour Jeanette during lockdown and the value of trust, kindness and community spirit.
In her first blog Karina, our new Love Your Neighbour Coordinator, shares what inspired her to be involved with Liverpool Cares and how excited she is to bring older and younger neighbours together to build mutually beneficial friendships.
Over the past 2 years, Liverpool Cares’ Winter Wellbeing project has helped older neighbours across Liverpool stay warm, safe, active and connected during the coldest time of the year: October to March. Each year, depending on the severity of the weather and the changing needs of our community, the project has looked a little bit different.
We can hardly believe that we’re approaching the end of September, after what has been a surreal summer. As we move into autumn, we’ve got an exciting programme of social clubs to get involved with throughout October. So, join us at one of our virtual or phone-in social clubs, and hang out with your older and younger neighbours while trying out something new!
Here’s a small snippet of the work Rachael, our Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator, has been doing over the past five months during these unprecedented times. Rachael and the small (but mighty!) team in Liverpool Cares have been supporting over 617 older neighbours in the only way Liverpool Cares knows how: through kindness, empathy, compassion in our communities and by never, ever giving up.
