JOIN IN-PERSON OR VIA ZOOM

Join us for our monthly Let's Talk Peer Event. Share what you know & find out about local solutions! It's relaxed, friendly and social....

What's it about? 

Let's Talk Peer Event provides the opportunity to talk about anything and everything that's to do with Islington - whether it's something you're having difficulties with or something you've discovered that you want to share. 

Wed 22 March, 10.30am - 1.30pm

LIFT Islington, 45 White Lion Street, N1 9PW or Zoom

Free refreshments & healthy snacks will be at LIFT Islington

10.30am - Introductions by Host, Shamin Noronha - Team Leader, Age UK Islington

10.45am - London Borough of Islington Council will talk about the Housing Register, Bidding, Mutual Exchange, and Repairs Service.

12.30pm - Option for peers to have a one-to-one session or continue with group Q&A session with Islington Housing Services

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

Let’s Talk Peer Event empowers, enables, the voice of its peers to gain knowledge, friendships and better our lives.” Rose-Marie McDonald

“Let’s Talk Peer Event is an empowering peer support group for everyone in the local community, professionals, volunteers, residents (especially those who don’t have access to the internet or skills). A great information centre and communications and support group. Great place to meet friends old and new.” William Digan

“If you ever needed to find out about Islington local community services and help available to residents and those who are carers then Shamin (the organiser/host of this event) and her volunteers are there to give advice and support, and they can follow up later with one to one support.” David Viey
