Research suggests there are over 1 million people who often feel lonely in London. An increasing number of people work and live alone making London in particular a lonely city.
Many of us feel that we would like more company and conversation without the need to have a strong interest in any particular activity. Our experience is that drawing strength from like-minded people can make all the difference. That's why we created Good Company.
What to expect
Good Company provides access to like-minded people looking for friendship (not dating) without the need to have a specific interest. Our welcome meetings ensure everyone you meet is safe and genuine.
We meet on the first Thursday of the month at 7pm for an hour or so. Our next meeting is on 1st June at a central London location. If you would like to attend please register here.
At each meeting we have a guest speaker and the opportunity to discuss our own experience of being lonely in small groups. We'll share advice and tips for making more connections over tea and coffee.
Once you've attended a welcome meeting we'll put you in touch with people who would like to share time doing similar things. For instance, going to a gallery together or going for a walk in the local area.

"A BIG THANK YOU for creating this gathering group for people of all ages, who like to meet other people. I enjoyed meeting those on my table and look forward to seeing them again another time. The discussions you set for us on each table were, I thought, stimulating. I'm really glad I saw your ad on streetbank and even gladder to have responded and then attended." Patricia
