The Long Distance Social Club NOT CURRENTLY RUNNING
The COVID-19 crisis has been hard on all of us for all sorts of reasons. We miss our friends, we miss being able to socialise, we miss being able to just sit down with other people, have a chat and relax.
That’s what the Long Distance Social Club is all about. Using Zoom in these socially distanced times, it’s a way for men to get together to chat about different issues as a group, support each other in finding solutions to their problems and anxieties, and improve their wellbeing.
The Long Distance Social Club runs weekly on Thursday afternoons. Each week there is a different theme to kick off discussions. We also share some exercises designed to get you thinking about how to look after yourself and stay on top of things in these strange times.
The Club is open to all Leeds men, including trans men.
To join, you will need a smartphone, tablet or computer with a camera, plus the free Zoom app. You can also run it directly in your browser from the Zoom website.
If you are new to video chats, just get in touch and we will send you step-by-step instructions on how to use Zoom. If you get stuck we can give you a call and talk you through it.
