Love Your Neighbour

Want to match with a neighbour for fun and friendship at Liverpool Cares?

Liverpool Cares' Love Your Neighbour programme brings younger (18+) and older (over 65)neighbours together to spend time one-on-one and enjoy company and conversation. We try our hardest to bring people together based on mutual interests to create genuine, long-lasting friendships.

To sign up as a volunteer fill in this short form and make sure to tick the box for one-to-one friendship. 

Friends will normally enjoy a regular cuppa and a natter about all sorts - either over the phone, in person or a mix of the two, building deep and mutual friendships over time that helps bring a little of the outside world in for neighbours who can struggle to get out.

The process for getting involved includes an application, induction and DBS before you can be selected for a match. We choose pairs based on mutual interests, personality type and location so please give as much detail on your application form as it helps us get a better picture of you as a person. 

To sign up as a volunteer fill in this short form and make sure to tick the box for one-to-one friendship.

What's it like to be part of Love Your Neighbour?

Younger Neighbour Tennessee sums up what it feels like to be matched with older neighbour Marie through the programme, he told us,

"I had no expectations before talking to Marie, I just worried about breaking the ice during our first call, but a minute into the call, we were chattering away like we'd known each other for ages. We talk about everything and amazingly, we agree on everything. She's an absolute joy and her positivity is infectious. Meeting up has been an absolute pleasure. I never think of time with her as a charity, it's a real friendship."
