Baltic Triangle-based charity Liverpool Cares are on the look-out for new volunteers to join their network of young people helping to reduce loneliness. The organisation run a programme of social clubs taking place across the city every month, as well as their Love Your Neighbour initiative. Connecting older and younger neighbours to combat isolation and anonymity, the charity does fantastic work to ensure relationships flourish in an age of so much disconnection. In March this year volunteer Robyn, 24 was matched with George, 81, due to their mutual passion for music. Robyn says: “We chatted about how George met his wife, about the Liverpool music scene in the 60s and how George used to take his Siamese kitten to Bold Street then into the Jacaranda basement! The cat loved it, apparently.” Find out more on the charity’s website.
