Friendship at Home


We provide one to one befriending, social activities, exercise activities and independent living services for over 60s in North East Lincolnshire.

Our activities are provided at a variety of venues across Grimsby and Cleethorpes.

Monday 1pm - 3pm Bingo Club at Lucarlys - As it says in the title this is a Bingo club however within the 2 hours it also includes a raffle, a few games of Hoy and also some refreshments.

Monday 10am - 11am New Age Kurling at St Andrews Cleethorpes - Kurling is a competitive yet fun sport which is suitable for all abilities and is very easy to pick up.

Tuesday 10am - 11am Shibishi (Tai Chi) at St Aidan's Community Church Cleethorpes - At the Shibishi class you will learn simple tai chi exercises that are easy to learn yet they can be very effective for improving co-ordination and balance and can also reduce stress.

Tuesday 1pm - 3pm Social Club Scouts Hut Carr Lane Grimsby - Here at the Tuesday club the aim is to socialise and provide the opportunity to meet like-minded individuals and make new friends. Each week the club has a guest speaker, a quiz, a game of bingo and will also include a drink.

Wednesday 10am - 11.45am Social Club St Aidan's Community Church Cleethorpes - The Wednesday club is specifically for those who have concerns about their memory and/or those who may be suffering from anxiety or low moods. The club offers a variety of different activities including; games and quizzes, reminiscence and also discussion sessions for everyone to get involved in. Please note that carers too are very welcome.

Thursday 10am - 12 noon Social Club Beaconthorpe Church Hall Grimsby Road Cleethorpes - The Thursday club is very similar to the Tuesday club and is a great opportunity to meet and socialise with individuals. Each week the club has a guest speaker, a quiz, a game of bingo and includes a drink.

Friday 10am - 11am Chair Based Exercise Class Beaconthorpe Church Hall Grimsby Road Cleethorpes - As it says in the name the club is based upon chair based exercises. This can be a very good form of exercise which does not put too much pressure upon the body. It will help to strengthen muscles and loosen joints.

In addition to the activities and the befriending service in which we offer we have also introduced a new service called Independent Living. Within this service we aim to provide a good quality service where volunteers carry out low level tasks around the home. Some of the tasks include:

  • Domestic support around the home such as; vacuuming, dusting and washing, folding and ironing clothes.
  • Shopping (including assisted shopping) for food, clothes, personal items and gifts.
  • Light gardening tasks
  • Preparing and cooking light meals
  • Safety calls and medication prompts
  • Dog walking
  • Accompanying you to appointments such as hospital, doctors or hairdresser appointments.

For more information about all of our services please see the leaflets attached.
