It’s easier to make friends when you’re a child, but as you grow older and move house or school it can feel harder to meet new people.

Put it into practice

To get out and meet new people start by identifying what you like to do, and which of those involve other people. Sign up to classes and join activities where you’ll meet like-minded people.
