Based five minutes from Elephant and Castle station we are a friendly, diverse and accessible day centre for vulnerable older people in Southwark.

Stones End day centreAt Stones End Day Centre we specialise in working with older adults who have care and support needs. We support our members to remain healthy and independent for as long as possible. To do this, we work closely with social services, partner organisations, families, carers and professionals to build strong relationships to ensure the person we support is at the centre of quality integrated service.

A typical day with us starts with our wheelchair accessible transport service going out to collect members from their home. On arrival at the centre they enjoy a hot drink and some toast to settle in.  We deliver a choice of morning activities, serve a healthy lunch and a choice of afternoon activities before the transport service returns our members home.
