Together we matter
Our centre is currently open and offering a full range of groups and classes. We are also still offering lots of services online, on the phone, and by post. We hope you will join us!
Claremont: Together We Matter
We are a very friendly, open, and welcoming community. We have a large programme of groups, classes and projects aimed at being creative and healthy in body and mind, and at helping to develop real and lasting friendships. Most of our activities are for people aged 55 and over. We also provide a low-cost psychotherapy service for Islington residents (18+).
Activities for People Aged 55+
Our classes and groups meet both online and, when possible, at our centre in Angel, Islington. Please check our What’s On! page for more information.
We have resumed our in-centre classes (lots of them and more to follow!), and are also running online and hybrid groups and classes, with hundreds of people participating each week.

How we help
Low cost psychotherapy and bereavement services for Islington residents.
“A wonderful, infectious sense that everyone is welcome, and that nobody is judged.”
“It’s gentle, not judgmental, and I don’t feel so lonely anymore.”
“I have been struggling to keep connected. I don’t really have any family and friends – Claremont was my main place to see people. It is great to have someone listen to how I’m feeling. I’m so grateful for your calls.”
“These Zoom classes have been my lifeline to the real world, I’m able to socialize with people again and it has been an absolute blessing.”
Help us to provide high quality, aspirational activities, as well as engagement and friendship for thousands of older people, most of whom live alone. Please donate and please also consider us in your will.
