Neighbourhood circles

Neighbourhood circles are local living rooms where you can meet other local residents. Neighbourhood circles are run by volunteers, and participating in them is mostly free of charge.

People of all ages are welcome to participate in neighbourhood circles but the groups operate on the terms of the elderly participants. The content of the meetings can be tailored according to the participants’ requests.
