MYsocial is a new service from Age UK Lambeth.
One of our goals is to have a real impact on the ability of older people to live independent lives, support their own well-being and actively contribute to society. We also want to help reduce social isolation and loneliness.
We have launched MYsocial to create a way for people to connect: make new friends, try new things to do, and do things that make you happy.
MYsocial is not a support service in the traditional sense. We have other services that can do that. There are no assessments, support plans or even support workers.
It is all about creating opportunities for you to have fun, try new things and meet some other amazing people.
Working in partnership…
We want to work closely with other organisations around the borough. We are keen to promote what you do, in order to provide our members with the best possible range of activities. Just because someone is a MYsocial member shouldn't stop them from doing other things too. In fact, we would see it was a success if someone came along to one of your taster events and enjoyed it so much they stayed. Obviously, we'd hope they remain MYsocial members too, but we would take delight in knowing they are doing things that make them happy!
We want to do this in two ways:
1. Host a Taster event for our members.
We know that there are a huge number of groups around the borough that are hobby or sport based. Usually led by volunteers passionate about their interest, we know that they are often looking for ways to recruit new members. And what better way than to show off your skills, hobby or sport to our members!
So, why not think about running a taster session for MYsocial members and see if they like it. We'll promote the event and your club/society on social media and through the website, as well as to our members.
If this is something that appeals, then why not drop us an email, and we'll get back to you as soon as we can!
2. Let us promote your event on our calendar.
Maybe your organisation has an event or a series of events that might appeal to our members.
Then make sure you get them on our Partner Calendar. This is accessible by all members and included in our mailings. All you have to do is just complete the form below and the team will do the rest.
