Love Your Neighbour is South London Cares' friendship matching scheme in Southwark and Lambeth bringing older (over 65) and younger neighbours together to spend a little time one-to-one.
Friends who've met through Love Your Neighbour will normally enjoy a cup of tea and a natter about all sorts – from work to relationships to days gone by – and build deep and mutual friendship over time that help bring a little of the outside world in for neighbours who can struggle to get out.
Meet Love Your Neighbour friends Rita and Laura below:
As with all good friendships, a Love Your Neighbour match can bring company, companionship and connection – as well as stories of love and loss, hope and heartbreak.
Check out some of the lovely images of friends Amelia and Ivy, Alexandra and Bernadina, Cait and Annabel, Edward and Sandra, Arthur and Frances and Saleha and Laura below.
