(PAGE) Making Connections

Looking to extend your social circle? Want to meet new people who share the same interests as you? Our range of clubs, groups and activities are a great way to keep yourself in the know. From Pub Clubs and Snooker Clubs, to Walking Football and Support Groups, we are confident that we have a club or activity that will appeal to you.


Ways we can help:

  • Wellbeing Centres: Would you like to remain independent despite a condition or disability? You may be interested in attending one of our Wellbeing Centres, which host a range of activities, quizzes and games throughout the whole week. Our fleet of fully-accessible minibuses can pick you up from your home and take you to and from the Centre. Find out more on the Health & Wellbeing page.
  • Social Groups: Would you like the opportunity to meet with similar people? We run a range of clubs and groups across the local area, all of which offer a variety of fun, stimulating activities and have lunch and refreshments available. The clubs and groups meet on either a weekly or monthly basis and everyone is always made to feel welcome. Find what groups meet near you on our Events Calendar page.
  • Sports & Fitness: Looking for ways to keep yourself fit and active in later life? From Walking Football clubs, Snooker, ‘Zumba Gold’ and Table Tennis; we organise multiple sports clubs about the area for people of all sporting abilities. Pop over to our Events Calendar to see what clubs we have.
  • Pub Clubs: Looking for something a little more informal? Our Pub Clubs are a good place to meet people over a nice wholesome lunch. The clubs meet once a month and guarantee you a warm, friendly welcome. Find your local Pub Club on our Events Calendar.
  • Coach Trips: Enjoy getting out of the area and exploring new locations? Why not try one of our many Coach Trips. Our day-trippers travel to many regional locations, such as seaside resorts, museums, events and historic attractions. See where we’re heading next on the Events Calendar.
  • Minibus Trips: Interested in getting out to new places, despite a condition or disability? Our Minibus trips may be just the ticket. Our fully-accessible buses run excursions most weekends of the year to a series of attractions such as seaside resorts, town shows, fairs and museums – there’s even space for a friend or carer to come along too. Our Events Calendar lists all of our upcoming trips.
  • Information & Advice: Don’t know where to start? Our friendly team have a wealth of local knowledge and can help you fill out a range of forms, such as Freedom Passes, Disabled Badges and Taxicards, ensuring that you can still get out and about. Get in Touch with our team using the details below to find out more.
  • Volunteering: Looking for a way to keep busy and give back to the community? Why not share your skills with us as a volunteer? We rely on the support of volunteers, who take up many varied yet exciting roles across our activities as Befrienders, Minibus Drivers, Shop Assistants and Club Co-ordinators.
