Things to do

We organise a wide range of activities right across the local area to encourage people to get out and about, allow them to meet new people and engage in enjoyable activities; whatever their interests. We organise both regular activities such as our creative writing (link) or singing group (link) as well as special events such as our recent afternoon tea. We also recognise that transport can often be a major obstacle so we aim to offer transport to all of our activities. Give us a call to find out about any of our friendly groups.

Making a Match

Making a Match is a new National Lottery Community Fund funded project MAECare are delivering in conjunction with OPAL. It aims to help people aged 50+ living in LS16 or LS17 who can live independently to widen their social circle by matching them with someone with a similar interest so they can build a sustainable friendship over that interest.
