Friendship centres

Age UK works with a number of friendship centres across the country. They provide a great way to meet like-minded people and make friends in your area.

The friendship centres listed below are run by groups of active older people who meet on a regular basis for social activities, which could include rambling, tenpin bowling, pub lunches, theatre visits, holidays and days out.

Please note that social groups, activities and services are provided by local Age UKs across the country, including Age UK's befriending services. Find out what's available near you.
