Find new friends with Chirpy
Chirpy Plus is an online community that helps you make real-life friends.
Whether you’re an empty-nester, a recent retiree, or just looking to expand your social circle, Chirpy Plus provides you with a safe way to meet like-minded people in your area.
We know that despite being more connected than ever through the use of technology, people our age often experience feelings of loneliness and isolation. We also know that being lonely is bad for our health – research suggests that it’s as harmful as smoking 15 cigarettes per day!
The antidote is friendship. That’s why Chirpy Plus uses technology to bring people together in person. Our online community gives you the tools you need to find people, make friends, and enjoy life.
Join thousands of other over-55s throughout New Zealand who are keen to meet new people and do new things!
