Thank you for your interest in East London Cares.
There are two ways people over 65 can get involved: through our Social Clubs and our Love Your Neighbour programme.
Our Social Clubs are free group activities take place several times a week and offer a chance for older (over 65) and younger neighbours to share time, laughter and new experiences that help everyone to feel a part of our rapidly changing city, rather than left behind by it. Clubs during week days, evenings and weekends include yoga, pub quizzes, trips to galleries, choirs, brunch clubs and more.
The Love Your Neighbour programme aims to introduce younger and older neighbours across Tower Hamlets and Hackney to spend time together one-on-one and enjoy company and conversation. We match up people based on proximity, and try our hardest to bring people together based on mutual interests to create genuine, long lasting friendships.
With Love Your Neighbour, our volunteers cannot help with practical tasks such as cooking, cleaning or attending doctor's appointments.
