Missing social connections? Join us online!

in Latest News, Our Team's Vision

Are you a senior and would like to get involved with an online discussion or activities group for free to improve your social connections? Well now’s your chance. We have some groups which are positively flourishing and we’d love you to join us.

If you live on your own, it’s the chance to expand your friendship circle and fill some of those spare hours. These opportunities are open to everyone, male and female, wherever you live.

Are you a Sudoku king or do you have excellent debating skills? Maybe you want to learn a new language, fancy some meditation and relaxation or are keen to progress your DIY skills. Perhaps you just want to enjoy general banter. Whatever your interests, we’re sure to have something which suits you.
