ABOUT US

Formed in 2009 Didsbury Good Neighbours is a limited company and registered charity with a board of trustees responsible for the development and management of the charity’s services and projects. In 2013 we opened The Pavilion Café, which along with Didsbury Neighbourhood Centre now plays a significant role in the work of the charity. We welcome interest from others who share our aims and want to get involved in governance activities.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to make a measurable difference to older people by enabling them to lead independent lives and to raise awareness amongst local residents, groups and businesses of the part that they can play in helping to create an age-friendly neighbourhood. We enrich the lives of older people in Didsbury by providing practical help and creating opportunities to contribute to society, connect with others and live life to the full.
