Men are often an under-represented group in Community Centre services - they are also traditionally less likely than women to have strong support networks, and most importantly are less likely to ask for help. To provide a specific space for men and to create more opportunities to reduce their social isolation in Islington we launched a Men's Social Group in November 2017.
Since its launch, the Group has gone from strength to strength and is growing all the time. The facilitator, Sahir (a qualifed counsellor), does a fantastic job of involving all members in decisions about the Group - including what music gets played on the stereo and deciding locations for trips out.
The Group meets every Wednesday, from 3pm to 5pm. All men, aged 55 or over are very welcome!
It would be great to see you there.
