Hi All, I have really enjoyed my time on Streetlife, both through meeting new people and helping some friends and I to set up our not-for-profit organisation allowing us as a community to share how we learn about new (and sometimes frustrating) ... [ more ]

We're holding another Tech & Tea event! This will be our third event and we have been overwhelmed by the positive response we have had since our first event last year. Tech & Tea is a fantastic opportunity to not only gain advice and support ... [ more ]
Matthew R
Just to be clear, although Streetlife is a great way to communicate, Tech & Tea does not rely on Streetlife. Everyone is welcome to come regardless of how you have found out about our sessions, we really are open to all. We have a mailing list ... [ more ]

Hi Fiona, we definitely encourage coming along as much as possible. There's always something to learn and we hope it's a good social get-together too that's hard to come by in London. Looking forward to seeing you again

Matthew R
Hi Biscuit - We are not-for-profit and we need to raise money so that we can fund things like renting out a library room and providing all the teas and coffees. So far we have been paying for this with any donations topped up by ourselves. Our ... [ more ]

I need to find someone who is very good at explaining IT

Hazel H
in West Hill
It's difficult to find someone who is good with IT and able to explain it in laymen's terms. Does such a person exist? If you know someone who can help me, please recommend them here, or private message me. Thanks.
Matthew R
Hi Hazel, you might be interested to know that this Sunday a research group from Imperial College London are trialing a free tech help session at Battersea library, from 13:30 until 15:30. The idea is that you can drop by with any questions you may ... [ more ]

Matthew R
Hi Miss J, yes I will be sure to put another post up when we organise another meet up. Hi Ian, no problem stay as long or as short as you like! Thanks both
Matthew R
The meetings went well, we really learnt a lot from talking to everybody who came. As a brief conclusion to our findings: there are many community services/meet ups/events out there that we are each aware of in our own way. Unfortunately it seems ... [ more ]
Matthew R
Jenny B: we have already had the meet ups so there are no other follow ups planned just yet. Thanks for asking anyway, we will be sure to post another message when there is another meet up. HCK: I'm sorry I can't help you with that one. Good luck.

Please help with my neighbourhood research

Hi, I am doing some research into how we can improve how we help each other in our local communities - hopefully we can go on to develop something useful for us all here. I'm studying at the University of Imperial College London. It would be very ... [ more ]

The module is actually called 'Design and New Venture Creation' and teaching is shared with the Royal College of Art. The aim of this course is to develop something new that addresses a broad problem. My team love the idea of trying to connect people ... [ more ]

I understand your comment. This is initial research we are trying to conduct and so there is definitely a line between trying to be as open ended as possible and being more specific. Appreciate your extra comments and we will definitely use these ... [ more ]

Matthew R
Thank you very much! I am very flexible with time so whenever most of us can come together would be fantastic. How about an evening late next week, perhaps Thursday? Or I can do anytime on a Sunday if that's more suited to us. If you could comment ... [ more ]

Thank you all very much for your interest! I'm going to go to some cafes today and just make sure they are fine with having us all there together, so I'll confirm later today. Because of the enormous support we may well hold two different meet ups, at ... [ more ]
