Loneliness can affect us all, but you are not alone. If you are feeling lonely, clubs and societies can help you keep active and connected to others.
There is such a lot going on in Medway including gardening clubs, local history groups, dance classes and much, much more. Many are looking for volunteers and new members. Joining a group in your local area is a great way to meet people with similar interests.
A Better Medway health walks are free and are an easy way to get more active, enjoy the great outdoors and socialise with like minded people.
We also provide cycling groups, stop smoking support and weight management support. Churches and Faith Groups also have activities that are often open to people regardless of their faith.
The Net is another good resource to find out about clubs and groups in your area.
Men in Sheds
One of the projects bringing communities together is ‘Men in Sheds’, which builds on the skills of those who are out of work or retired.
At the group you can make furniture and meet new friends over a cup of tea. Call 01634 338 600 for details
Help to stay connected
As we get older we can face new challenges to staying active and connected with our communities.
Our Staying Connected booklet can point you in the right direction for the help you need, such as:
- Help with transport
- Making friends and home visiting schemes
- Support for carers
- Dementia Support
