Welcome to North Midlands LGBT Older Peoples Group

We are a friendly group of local older LGBT+ people who support each other through regular meetings and social activities. Most of our physical meetings currently take place in or around Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire. We also have weekly online social meetings on Zoom.

Our social meetings and activities help reduce isolation and loneliness for older LGBT+ people. We provide opportunities to make new friends and to expand your social network.  We also offer health information and workshops to learn new skills.
