Welcome to MYsocial Lambeth
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 friendships and feel part of a community.
Through joining MYsocial we want you to make lasting friendships, and feel a valued part of your community. And it’s FREE to join!
You need never feel that you are on your own at an MYsocial event, as all of our events have a host. That’s someone to give you a warm welcome and introduce to others, and make sure you are enjoying yourself! We host exciting events and have regular neighbourhood meet ups and small groups around the borough to help you connect with new neighbours or friends with similar interests. We want everyone to feel part of the MYsocial community.
We hope to see you soon at a MYsocial event!
ps. Have we mentioned it’s FREE to join!
As a member you have access to our calendar of events, these range from our regular core events, such as our exercise classes and computer clubs, to our set piece events which include our member’s birthday parties, theatre trips, dances, visiting galleries and exhibitions.

Based right in the heart of Brixton on Windrush Square, Vida’s Cafe is open every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 10-4.
There are snacks and a main meal available on the menu at affordable prices.
It’s a great place to meet up with your fellow members, enjoy a cuppa and a chat, and one of the team are always around to welcome you and help if you need any info about MYsocial.
At MYsocial, we would love you to connect with other members who live in your neighbourhood. We have monthly meet ups for each area in Lambeth, and this is where, with our help, that members plan events in their community: for example, a meal together, maybe even a walk around the park, help each other with gardening? We want MYsocial to be run for members, by members, and your contribution, ideas and input is valuable.
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.
We’re building up the number of deals for members, so please let us know if there’s a great local business you love, and we can ask them to join our MYsocial community too!
There’s lots of ways for you to get involved with MYsocial, from hosting events to sharing your skills with other members. Previously we’ve had members show others flower arranging, sharing their favourite recipes, to singing with a choir and much, much more, so don’t keep those talents to yourself, we’d love to help you share them.
Other ways members have been amazing include listening to children read at a local primary school and donate Christmas presents to guests at Age UK Lambeth’s Christams Day lunch for some of our most isolated citizens!
