There’s such a lot to do in the wider world, it can be overwhelming knowing where to start. So we’re setting up an ‘Under 35s Network’ that will provide 1 to 1 social mentoring and befriending for Mavar members who are feeling socially isolated. We’ve also compiled some useful resources.
For instance, you might want to join an exercise class, sing in a choir, go to a football match, join a Friday night dinner with other young people, check out an art exhibition or watch a film? The choices are endless.
You can find these lists in Mavar’s Resource Pack which is available to Mavar members. If you’d like a copy, contact Alex 020 8144 5074. We can also link you up with someone from the Under 35s Network if you’d rather not go to an event alone.
Many members want to meet new people, Jewish or not. The ‘Social Signposting’ section of the pack lists:
- events where you can meet people
- apps for making new friends
- websites of interesting places to go around London and Manchester.
Volunteering is another great way to meet new people whilst giving something back at the same time. You’ll find information about volunteering in the pack too.
Here’s an example of websites in our pack where you can meet new people:
