The Cares Family is a group of community networks of young professionals and older neighbours hanging out and helping one another in our rapidly changing cities.

We do this because while our big cities are amazing – full of people from all over the world and hotbeds of innovation and change – they can also be anonymous, lonely and isolating.

The Cares Family hosts group social clubs for younger and older neighbours to share time, laughter and new experiences – through dance parties, choirs, ‘Desert Island Discs’ nights, business visits, cooking classes and more. And we help create special one-to-one friendships between older and younger people, helping to bring the outside world in for people who can struggle to get out.
