Our Never Alone programme is designed to provide support for loneliness and other emotional and practical needs plus promote general wellbeing. We have recommendations to local groups who may be able to help you. Finding the right one that meets your needs or interests can be very fulfilling and truly boost your mood.

If you have a local group you would like to add to the listing below, please submit your details via the Google form here.


Friendly, welcoming social groups can be relaxed and informal and offer the chance to chat and build new friendships.

We recommend local social groups and clubs for women and men which provide entertainment, conversation and a range of social activities.

Walking is a popular choice both for relaxation and fitness. If you would like to get outside a little more, it can quickly become an enjoyable activity, and there are many groups in your area who would love you to join them for beautiful country walks.

Tring Rambling Club

Tring Rambling Club was founded 50 years ago by enthusiastic local walkers, sharing their passion for nature with friends at a gentle pace, as its aim, today, is to combine physical exercise and, maybe more importantly, friendly, social gathering. Typically, the Sunday walk starts at 10.30am or 1pm. Cakes and biscuits are provided at the end of the walk.


If you are interested in meeting fellow bookworms, there are reading groups in most towns for friendly discussions and thought-provoking debates. We can help pinpoint the perfect book group for you in your area.

Visual Impairment Reading Group

For readers of large print, talking books and BorrowBox, taking place every 6 weeks on Thursdays at Tring Library from 10.45am to 12.15pm. Refreshments are provided.


Having a wide choice of groups to pick up an old hobby or start a new one can be a wonderful way to meet new people with a similar interest to you.

We recommend local groups and clubs ranging from chess, bridge, poker, bingo, knitting, to bowls.

Thursday Fun Club
