Chorley social support groups
Social groups can help you connect with others who may be experiencing similar experiences of grief or loneliness. Group support can help you feel less alone and can improve mental health. The groups listed aren’t specifically bereavement support but are social opportunities where you’ll receive a friendly welcome and can meet other people.

- The Meeting Place
Open every Wednesday and Thursday from 10am until 2pm, The Meeting Place is open to anyone and everyone. By creating a safe, welcoming place to have a brew, a biscuit and a chat, we hope to reduce isolation. You can sit and have a chat over a brew or you can get involved in some of the activities we’re putting on; for example, transforming the courtyard into a greener, friendlier place to spend time in.
