East London Cares – be part of it

London – it's our city, one we adore and are proud to call home. It's full of music, laughter, community, personality and spirit. It's a global city, full of history and culture, which has inspired so many.

But the vibrant city we love is also changing fast and the new technology and pace of transformation can leave some people feeling anonymous, isolated and lonely.

That's why East London Cares exists: to connect younger and older people in our corner of the capital so that people can feel part of our changing city rather than left behind by it.

Give the gift of friendship

Sharing time is precious – especially in our busy, fast-paced city. But 40% of older people say the TV is their main form of company, and young people are increasingly feeling disconnected too. By donating to East London Cares, you could help make our activities possible so that older and younger Londoners can share time and new experiences

Fancy a challenge?
