Age UK works with a number of friendship centres across the country. They provide a great way to meet like-minded people and make friends in your area. The friendship centres listed below are run by groups of active older people who meet on a regular basis for social activities, which could include rambling, tenpin bowling, pub lunches, theatre visits, holidays and days out. Please note that social groups, activities and services are provided by local Age UKs across the country, including Age UK's befriending services.
The aim of the groups are to welcome and encourage anyone over the age of 50 to get involved with their local community, meet new people, and take part in social activities. Volunteers are encouraged to plan activities, outings and engage other members of the group to ensure the groups success and longevity. The group meets every Wednesday from 2pm till 4pm at the Horncastle Youth Centre.
Many years ago, I had a good friend who had just gone through a very difficult loss and was overwhelmed with sadness. All I could do for the first few weeks was sit with her while she cried. Over time, she revealed the depth of her guilt and sadness and I realized that it was going to take her a long time to heal.
