What is MYsocial?
MYsocial is a community brought to you by Age UK Lambeth. We’re here to bring people together to try new things, connect with their neighbours, develop lasting friendships and feel part of a community.
As a member you have access to our calendar of events, these range from our regular events, such as our exercise classes, creative writing class and computer clubs, to our set piece events which include our member’s birthday parties, theatre trips, dances, visiting galleries and exhibitions, to trips out of London. All of our events have a host to welcome you and introduce you to other members, we know it can feel a bit scary to meet new people so our hosts will help you with that if it’s your first time attending.
We also have monthly neighbourhood meet ups where you can meet other members who live in your neighbourhood over a cuppa, and plan things you would like to do together.
There are also plenty of opportunities to get involved, either by becoming an event host, a neighbourhood group leader, a centre welcomer or an event buddy to new members, helping out with admin and phone calls and much more. We want MYsocial to be led by members, for members
Who can join MYsocial and how much does it cost?
MYsocial is open to everyone over 18. Although most of our members are over 45, we have no qualifying age criteria.
Membership is FREE!!! You just pay for your own costs, for example, a cinema ticket or a meal. We keep things as affordable as possible with at least a third of events are free and another third under a tenner!
Members also have exclusive access to local deals around the borough, just show your membership card (which is sent to you after you have attended your first event or neighbourhood meet up) to save money and support local businesses, please let us know if there’s a great local business you love, and we can ask them to join our MYsocial community too! This can be your favourite cafe, a shop, your hairdresser or anything you think other members will enjoy.
