Older People's Project

Our Older People’s Project is for LGBTQ people aged 50+ looking for a sense of community, support or information.

We provide those aged 50+ with a number of regular social activities, meet ups and trips. We also provide information and host workshops about services for older people and make connections for people within the community and to other services.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic we are unable to run our drop-in groups. 

Currently we run two online groups a month on Zoom, on the first and third Wednesday of every month, from 11am – 12.30pm. If you would like to attend, email Helen who will send you the Zoom link.

We are also supporting people one to one via the telephone and Zoom.
