Dear Friend,

We hope you’re all keeping well and staying safe.

We just wanted to let you know Irish Community Care in partnership with Irish community groups in the North West is launching an important new programme named CARA to support our communities to stay safewell and connected through Covid 19. Our partners include:

Brian Boru Club; Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann; GAA (John Mitchells and Wolfe Tones); Institute of Irish Studies; University of Liverpool; Irish Community Care; Irish Community Care Manchester, Liverpool Irish Centre; Liverpool Irish Festival; Mersey Harps and Shenanigans

There are many members of our communities who may need a helping hand or a listening ear to get through the Covid 19 pandemic. Many of us are older, in poor health; many of us live alone far from family and friends.


If you would like to get involved as a volunteer (this might mean picking up the phone for a chat or picking up groceries or a prescription) please complete this short form:

If you know someone who is isolated or likely to need a bit more support during the coming months, please help spread the word to them or fill in this short form and we will take it from there:

Or you can call 0151 237 3987 for further information

We thank you for your support. Please promote CARA – as widely as possible in our communities – to ensure we let people know that there is help available during this challenging time.

Look after each other and stay safe and stay well.

Is mise le meas
