Clubs and groups for 60+

Do you sometimes feel that you are on your own and have less contact with friends or family than you would like to? You may have lost the confidence to go out or feel cut off from others. 

Loneliness and isolation are feelings that we can all experience, but it can be worse when you are older. 

Our Golden Years groups are for people aged 60 + and a chance for you to join like-minded individuals for a cuppa and a natter, a chance to knit or sew, a game of cards or maybe you would like support to get to grips with using your tablet or mobile phone. 

Come and build new friendships or maybe even rekindle some old ones!

We can also recommend other groups that you may be interested in.

Since joining Golden Years I have felt much better in myself, I have met lots of new people and gone along to trips and events and have more of a social life now.
