Whether you're interested in making new friends, pursuing a hobby or interest, or making your voice heard on issues that affect people in later life, there's a group in Essex for you.

If you're looking to socialise, there are a number of groups which organise regular social events and outings for active older people, including talks, day trips, holidays, walks, tea dances and much more. There are also a wide variety of special interest groups, each focusing on a particular activity which is a great way to keep up your favourite hobby or even try out a new one.

If you're interested in helping to improve your local community, there are also groups which share information, and campaign to influence services affecting people in later life. They may also arrange social activities.

If you are looking for a club or group near you, please take a look at our clubs and groups directory.
