Love Your Neighbour is North London Cares' friendship matching scheme, which brings volunteers together with their older neighbours aged 65 and over. This 1-2-1 Friendship Programme will connect you with an older neighbour in North London for regular visits or phone calls. You'll build a mutually beneficial friendship with an older neighbour in your local community, learn from and about each other's life experiences, and hopefully become good friends along the way. This means that our older pals who are less able to go out and about, or who have lost some social connections over the years, can feel re-connected to their local community through friendship, chatter, and laughter.
This programme is a unique opportunity to connect with someone of a different generation outside of your usual social bubble and a wonderful opportunity to share skills and interests but also acquire new ones too.
Love Your Neighbour runs across the boroughs of Camden and Islington. You can still apply if you live outside these boroughs. To find out more you can read our Love Your Neighbour Guide but if you want to know what it's all about we think Dexter and Michael's friendship says it all!
