Do you want to meet new friends and get out more?  If you are aged 50+ and live in or LS17 we may be able to help!

This club is free-to-join and is for people who are independent, looking for interests and activities to get involved with in their local area and meet like-minded people.   Come and join small or larger friendship groups to share activities such as meals out, cinema, games, walks and even walking sports.

We have a lot of information about local and city-wide activities you may find of interest, some of which may be low cost or even free.  We help people to work out the practicalities of meeting up and support them to build and maintain new friendships.

Let us know what you are interested in!

Please get in touch if you would like to attend any of the events or are interested in creating another event of your interest.

Making a Match is part of Time to Shine, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and aims to help people get out more and connect with other local people who share similar interests.   It is being delivered by MAECare in partnership with OPAL (Older People’s Action in the Locality).
