Our vision is the creation of an environment and a culture of justice and fairness in which everyone has a voice, everyone is heard and everyone is understood; a place where everyone can contribute to, and benefit from, a vibrant and diverse community.
We seek to build strong and positive relationships between people of different backgrounds and work towards a shared vision of equity and social inclusion.
We provide a fully inclusive outward looking environment within which we offer structured services to vulnerable adults as a response to social isolation and loneliness and to the extension of independent living.
WHAT WE DO
Neighbourly Care works with Ealing's minority community groups providing pathways into Ealing's many diverse communities, offering services and support to socially isolated and lonely older people. We have been providing our services since 1983 and our philosophy and practice has underpinned a commitment to bring older people from all backgrounds together.
We support over 4,000 older users who derive from over 100 different countries of birth and speak over 40 different first languages.
As our population ages there are many "hidden" elders of living in social isolation with little contact or support - and this is especially (although not exclusively) the case within minority communities where language and cultural differences can accentuate problems over access to support.
Our services include social and socialising activities, fitness classes, health promotion, health walks, mental health projects, support for carers - delivered from our 21 local neighbourhood centres across the borough (many are currently closed).
Do you or your group have a shared interest, but need a space to meet? We can help
Neighbourly Care is part of the Ealing Community Network, a membership organisation open to all non-profit organisations delivering services in the London Borough of Ealing.
The Network was established 2001 and is hosted by a member organisation, as elected through the ECN membership.
ECN’s primary role is to ensure that the community and voluntary sector in Ealing has a collective voice and an accountable and democratic consultative body, by which it can agree a collective view on key issues. It communicates these effectively and constructively to strategic partners and vice versa. ECN representatives are elected to key strategic bodies and partnerships.
The Network is committed to growing membership and representation and Neighbourly Care is represented on the Executive Committee as a lead for older people and community engagement.
