🏠 Social Clubs at Home
Our Social Clubs at Home are free online and over-the-phone group activities hosted via Zoom. Much like our usual in-person Social Clubs, our online version allows our community of older and younger neighbours to continue to enjoy taking part in activities together.
If you'd like to make a referral, either for yourself, a patient, tenant, a friend or neighbour, head to www.manchestercares.org.uk/older-neighbour-referral-form.
Here are all of the virtual clubs we have planned this month! If the club has a camera symbol 🎦 it means it’s a group video chat on zoom, using the internet. If the club has a phone symbol 📞 it’s a group phone chat which you can join in by calling in using your landline or mobile. All of these clubs are free to attend. If you would like help getting Zoom setup then get in touch.
