Sage - older LGBT+ support Yorkshire MESMAC run group

Even with the challenges thrown up at us as a result of the Coronavirus, Sage still provides a weekly opportunity to socialise. Before COVID-19 became a part of our lives, Sage drop-in sessions took place on the first Thursday and the third Saturday of every month at the MESMAC main meeting room in Blayds Yard, Leeds between 12.30pm and 4pm. Given the added pressure on everyone during the time of the Coronavirus and the palpable increase in feelings of loneliness and isolation suffered by its members, a weekly zoom call was established on Tuesdays from 12 noon to 2pm. For those members who could not connect because of a lack of equipment or knowledge about how to connect, tablets have been made available with training on how to use them. Any changes in schedule or a change back to face-to-face drop-in meetings will be announced on this website or on Sage’s twitter account and facebook pages (see below for details of these).
