Staying connected in a disconnecting time

As social distancing continues in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have adapted our programmes to help older and younger neighbours stay connected in a disconnecting time.

Help keep our older neighbours connected from afar

Our teams are working tirelessly to help older neighbours to have someone to turn to, and someone to talk to, during the Covid-19 crisis. Already hundreds of phone calls have helped us reassure older people in Liverpool, to ask what people need, and to provide connection in a disconnecting time.

But we need to do more.

Give the gift of friendship

Sharing time is precious – especially in our busy, fast-paced city. But 40% of older people say the TV is their main form of company, and young people are increasingly feeling disconnected too. By donating to Liverpool Cares, you could help make our activities possible so that older and younger Londoners can share time and new experiences

Fancy a challenge?

From 5k fun runs to marathons, and swims to cycles, there's something for you to brave this year.

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.
