Mirthy is a new online learning and events platform designed to help people aged 55 and over stay active, social and connected through shared interests
The interactive community offers a rapidly-expanding catalogue of events, workshops and lectures on everything from gardening and cookery to pilates and belly dancing – many of which are hosted by experts over the age of 55.
The platform has been set up to help address the growing issue of social isolation and loneliness in later life.
Recent post-talk survey data found that 68% of participants found sessions helped them feel more connected to other people.
Membership to Mirthy is now available for just £4.99 per month, with the first month free.
It offers unlimited access to more than 50 events every month and could even make for a thoughtful Christmas gift.
A six or 12-month membership can provide many hours of entertainment, socialising and learning – all from the comfort of home.
