Liverpool Libs

New, Informal friendly group. We want to be non-judgemental and let people air their sorrows and their joys. Provides an opportunity for people to meet if they feel alone or mis-understood in non-threatening surroundings. Hopefully we can help each other, reduce stigma (and have some fun!)

Befriend and relax in and around Romford

A group to help people get out and about, enjoying life as much as we can, at our own pace. We can start with walks to the park, out door games, indoor games, we can discuss and grow the group together. Anyone is welcome :)


Need to chat

Just want to connect with other people who are feeling like me so I don't feel so damn lonely all the time. Maybe arrange meet ups because there doesn't seem to be much in the area
