Grassroots innovation and the COVID crisis: The Cares Family

The Cares Family connects older and younger people through activities such as social clubs and befriending schemes. The face-to-face element has always been crucial in ensuring the best of human connection. But on the 13th of March of this year, The Cares Family suspended all face-to-face activity due to the COVID-19 crisis. In this episode, Cares Family CEO Alex Smith speaks about the organisation's journey so far through the pandemic and how he led his small organisation through rapid reinvention of their core programmes.   Music credit: “Organisms” by Podington Bear soundofpicture.com
