Who's it for?

It's for adults over 18 years who are Islington residents / those with an Islington GP or those caring for someone who is an Islington resident.

The group decides what they want to get out of meeting, and will choose topics for ongoing/future monthly discussions. It's a safe, confidential space to discuss what you want to discuss.

There's no commitment to attend ongoing sessions.  Why not give one a try?

There will be lots of opportunity to share your experiences and to ask questions.  Drop in for a short time, or the whole session - it's up to you!  

Why attend?

  • Make local connections 
  • Share expertise & experiences 
  • Discover local sources of support
  • Access advice & local knowledge
  • Find out about support available from Age UK Islington
