Gransnet is the busiest online community for over 50s. At its heart is a discussion forum where our users give each other advice and support, discussing everything from being a grandparent to menopause, bereavement, current affairs, difficult daughters-in-law and relationships. Available 24/7, every day of the year, there is always someone online to respond to you. It’s been described by our users as a lifeline, a wonderful place to come for everyday chat but also for comfort when life gets tough. Being anonymous allows users to broach subjects they may not feel comfortable doing with their families and friends. Many of our users have gone on to meet up in real life and taken the virtual friendship to the next step.  Best of all it’s free and easy to use. Here is just one of the thousands of positive quotes from our users: “I never thought I would make new friends at my age but I have made some lovely friends on Gransnet.”
