Archway offers social evenings, afternoons and a weekly drop-in cafe. Social gatherings with a supportive, understanding and friendly environment help adults of all ages to gain confidence being around people. Just knowing other people struggle with loneliness too can sometimes bring relief and help you not to feel so isolated. They’re also a great way to meet others and to form new friendships.
