East London Cares' pro-active outreach will harness people and places of the community to identify and invite older and younger people who'd like to share time and laughter with another generation.


Most of our Outreach work will be performed by our dedicated staff team. Working with local partners across the public, private and community sectors, we place ourselves in places that encounter older neighbours at risk of isolation all the time – including chemists, GP surgeries, pubs, betting shops, and local estates and TRAs.

Our innovative Winter Wellbeing project will also help neighbours to stay warm, active and connected during the most isolating time of year – and through that programme alone young professionals have shared thousands of face-to-face conversations with older neighbours.
