Talk Time social group with b inspired’s Befriending Service
Verified service

B inspired is a neighbourhood-based charity in Braunstone, Leicester. The Neighbourhood Support Team work to provide support to local people and address the issues they face in their everyday lives.
Braunstone Befriending Service aims to tackle loneliness amongst the older population of the Braunstone community, by providing a weekly social group, with positive engagement activities and one-to-one support for them to engage in. 
One of the ways that this is achieved is through our weekly over 50’s social group; Talk Time. This is a friendly group of people who come together, to participate in a range of activities and enjoy a positive social experience. Activities include bingo, arts and crafts, trips out and more. 
We run two groups each week: 
Tuesdays - 10am - 12pm, Sandyhurst Supported Living, Hockley Farm Road, LE3 1HN  
Thursdays - 10.30am - 12.30pm, St Peters Church, Woodshawe Rise, LE3 1RH 
The Talk Time social groups are only available to individuals aged over 50, who live in the LE3 1 postcode area. 

Talk Time sessions cost £2 per person per session to attend.
