We are concerned to alleviate loneliness by providing opportunities for people to meet with others in a setting that is supportive. Our evening social group meets twice a month providing interesting and enjoyable entertainment and activities. We are mindful that many people find it hard to socialise in a group setting and volunteers are on hand to offer support and encouragement where needed. We offer subsidised transport for those unable to access the group independently and a befriending service for those not able or ready for a social group.
When/where we meet
Evening Social meets 2nd & 4th Friday of each month in Abingdon Baptist Church Hall. We prefer to see people first. Friday Afternoon Tea, Cake and Chat meets in same venue on 1st & 3rd. Friday of each month (excluding Bank Holidays)
Any adult experiencing loneliness.
Safeguarding policy in place. All staff and volunteers have references, DBS check and training
