In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.

Everything you need to help maintain your independence. Friendly faces from a team of staff, companionship and a meals service in a safe, secure environment - all just a step from your own front door.
