Friendship at Home Social Clubs
Project Category: Registered charity
These weekly social clubs are held in central locations for people aged 60 plus, and offer access to information, advice, support and social activities. The key function of the clubs is to give our members somewhere to meet where they feel safe and valued, and also gives them the opportunity to meet new people. Many of our members have formed solid friendships and now meet up not only at our clubs, but outside of them as well!
Being a member of a club ensures that all of the older people know that they will leave their homes at least once per week, that someone is expecting them and most importantly that there are people who care.
We have a variety of Friendship Clubs, from bingo groups or clubs that focus on socialising, to a club for those with memory concerns.
All of our club members will also have access to our day trips throughout the year. Our past day trips have included Brigg Garden Centre, Doncaster, Ripon, Millstones at Harrogate, Lincolnshire Home & Antiques Show and Scarborough – to name a few!
