HOW I MADE NEW FRIENDS AT THE SOCIAL CLUB: PHYLLIS

“Through the Saturday social I have been able to open up my life to new friends, and I have learned so much. I felt shy when I started, but I’m not shy anymore! I feel I have lots of friends now. The team have encouraged me to enjoy myself and helped me gain confidence in talking to people and taking part in things. They helped me apply for a cinema card and now I go with my friends whenever I like.” Phyllis

Phyllis comes to our Saturday social club every week. The club offered over 30 different activities this year ranging from favourites like visiting the theatre, going to restaurants, trips to the countryside to new activities like yoga, music sessions and DJ lessons. Members of the group come from a wide range of backgrounds including many who live alone in their own homes. To Phyllis, the club has been way for her realise the kind of changes she wanted to make in her life.
