Manchester Cares are a Community Network of older and younger neighbours from across the City of Manchester coming together to hang out and help one another.

We get together in two ways....

Social Clubs

Social clubs are our fun and free group activities. We have 10-15 that happen every month, with everything from a Cooking Club in Hulme to a Pub Quiz in the Northern Quarter.

We send our full programme out every month, and it's always a little bit different.

Love Your Neighbour

Love Your Neighbour is Manchester Cares' friendship matching scheme bringing older and younger neighbours together to spend a little time one-to-one.

Friends will normally meet up once a week to enjoy a cup of tea and a natter about all sorts – from work, to relationships, to days gone by, to Corrie – and build deep and mutual friendships over time that help bring together two people who might not normally meet.

Sign up or you can refer a friend or neighbour...

If you are interested and think you would like to be matched with a younger neighbour to spend a little bit of time together each week, call Vicky

on 0161 207 0800.
