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.

We provide a day opportunity service for older people with dementia, mental health, learning disability or physical mobility problems.

We support older people by helping them stay independent. We do this through group and 1-2-1 activities designed to promote social inclusion and maintain life skills.

The day service has a lounge area, dining area and a small room for any confidential meetings. We offer social and leisure activities, 1-1 support and outreach where required.

The service offers older people the opportunity to meet others and make friends, socialise and have fun through a variety of activities held each day. The group offers support, friendship, a variety of social activities and a hot lunch.

Transport to and from the venue is provided (included in the price). Alternatively, you can make your own way to us.

Our staff are skilled, trained and qualified in a full range of support and day activities designed to maintain skills and build self-reliance.
