The Story So Far


May 2010

Our founder Alex met isolated older neighbour Fred and took him for his first haircut in 3 months, inspiring the idea for The Cares Family. Watch the video >>



The first sister in The Cares Family, North London Cares, opened in 2011. South London Cares opened in 2014. In 2017, with investment from Nesta and The Big Lottery, we opened Manchester Cares. And in 2018 we will open Liverpool Cares to connect arriving younger people and rooted older people in another great, rapidly changing city.



Since late 2016 we've been working with partners in Liverpool's local government, voluntary sector and the wider health and social care community to establish specific areas of the city Liverpool Cares will focus on. We'll be hiring in mid-2018 and beginning programmes later in the year.
