This is a social group for people to meet in London. Events include afternoon coffee, self-development workshops, karaoke, daytrips, regular dinners, weekly support groups and a wide variety of other Meetups, including women-only events and LGBT events.

Steve Light set up this group to help people who are lonely, shy, socially anxious, have low self-esteem etc (hence members being called 'SociaLights'). It's a place where you can meet like-minded people, receive support and make new friends, all in a social setting.

However, being shy is not a necessity to be a part of the group. The only things you need are an open mind, an open heart and a desire for human company. :)

Some Meetups will be structured so that people can take it in turns to talk, other Meetups will be general and social. Rest assured, you will be around a warm group of people who care and understand.

If you have any questions or would like to talk, please feel free to message me or any other organiser.

By joining, you agree to our Group Rules and Banning Procedure. You also agree to our Legal Disclaimer and Release of Liability. If you don't agree to these terms, do not join this Meetup Group. Thank you.

Feel free to join us on Facebook, if you wish to keep in touch through social media!

Our weekly support group takes place in Oxford Circus. The next session can be found here.  Please remember that this is a peer run group. If you require more professional help and support, I have compiled a list of Useful Resources for Free and Low-cost Counselling/Therapy in London.

Here are other Recommended Meetup Groups, which are similar to ours.

Lots of love,
