connect@southend is for more active, independent older Jewish people. Meet your friends, make new ones, have a chat!
We were heartbroken when we were forced to close the doors of our 12 community centres in March due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, but we are absolutely still open and providing a number of key services to meet the needs of our community.
Jewish Care is providing Meals on Wheels to 3 times more people than before the Covid-19 pandemic. Our befriending volunteers are calling over 1000 people a week. Our lively virtual programme of talks, digital entertainment and online activities is growing every week.
Community Services available to members:
This is the place to catch up with your friends from connect@southend in our social events such as chatty cafe, tea parties, chaps that chat and more.
From online speaker events to quizzes and cooking, we've got a variety of online events. You can see the full programme of activities at jewishcare.org/keepingactive
