Social Activities

Social Activities

What does it do?

We offer opportunities for friendship and enjoyment, because there can be so much more to life than another day of watching the TV on your own.

How we can help

As we get older we may find we have more time on our hands, just as everyone else seems to be busier.  It may be physically more difficult to get out and about.  And sometimes the less we go out to socialise, the harder it can seem to start all over again.

Would you like to meet someone new to share a chat over a cup of tea? Would you like the opportunity to try something new and different? Would you want to get our more to socialise, but don’t have anyone to go with? Could you be a friend to someone too?

We offer a range of social activities and groups across Stoke-on-Trent and beyond for older people aged 50 and over, which could be just right for you.

What activities are there?

  • Craft and art groups
  • Knit and chat groups
  • Computer sessions
  • Reminiscence group

 Our groups meet regularly, and our activities take place in pleasant, accessible and safe surroundings.

They can help to keep you socially and mentally active, give you the chance to share histories, learn new skills or re-discover lost ones, make new friends and enjoy good company.

There is always a warm welcome for anyone new!
