East London Cares' Social Clubs are group activities taking place throughout the week, offering older and younger neighbours the chance to share time, laughter, skills and new experiences that help everyone to feel a part of our rapidly changing city, rather than left behind by it.
Our social clubs are a combination of in-person, over the phone or Zoom group activities where older and younger neighbours meet up, enjoy learning a new skill and share conversations with each other. The clubs take place on weekdays, evenings and weekends and include brilliant activities like monthly coffee and catch-ups, Qigong, dance, wellbeing clubs, historical building visits and tours, and choir, and neighbour-led skillshare clubs. Check out our Halloween club last year - led by our lovely neighbour Bee, who shared her water paint skills with us all to help us create Halloween cards!
We aim to make our Social Clubs programme as varied and fresh as possible and to ensure that there are clubs that appeal to everyone's interests. We are committed to making sure that all of our programmes, including our social clubs, are welcoming and safe spaces for all of our neighbours and we're proud to be part of the diverse communities of Hackney and Tower Hamlets that make east London such an exciting, interesting and vibrant place.
Throughout the year, clubs bring the amazing changing people and places around us – and culture and content from all over the world – to the table for older and younger neighbours to enjoy together.
