LGBTQ+ Chats

We offer a service for older LGBTQ+ residents who are feeling isolated and inactive.

Our specially trained LGBTQ+ volunteers can call at a convenient time to have a friendly chat and, if you wish, talk you through some gentle exercises to promote mobility or mindfulness to promote relaxation.
All exercises have been designed by a professional trainer and are desigjned to be fun and accessible, not telephone bootcamp!

Once COVID restrictions are lifted, the volunteer will be able to introduce you to other activities in the area, such as our new LGBTQ+ coffee morning.

If you think you might benefit from an Active Chat, please contact or 020 8877 8940
