Our Social Clubs are free activities which take place both face-to-face and remotely, and bring older (65+) and younger people from across Camden and Islington together for fun, laughter, friendship and new experiences.
Our face-to-face Social Clubs take place in different venues such as pubs, cafes, galleries, community centres and community gardens which change every month. Our clubs are about busting stereotypes that surround older and younger people: From cooking workshops to Hula Hooping and Congolese dance workshops to conversations about space exploration! We are always open to new ideas, new venues and new people, so if you’ve got an idea for a club you can come host your very own with Andy and Hannah, our social club coordinators. Everyone’s got something to share and we all have more to learn from each other.
Alongside our face-to-face clubs we host regular virtual clubs over Zoom and chatty phone clubs. These are great for volunteers and older neighbours alike who aren’t able to come along to our in-person get togethers. We also have our chatty telephone Social Clubs which mean neighbours in our network without digital access can take part too. Anyone can phone in and become part of our phone family – you’ll get to hear Tony and Harvey’s singalongs and plenty of stellar stories all from the comfort of your sofa.
The majority of our Social Clubs are taking place in local outdoor spaces to ensure the safety of all involved. However, we are hosting a handful of clubs indoors. For these clubs we will only accommodate however many people are able to safely social distance in the venue and ensure the space is ventilated. All our Social clubs are socially-distanced and we ask everyone to wear face-masks.
