The Haven Activity Centre is the jewel in Age UK Mid Devon's crown. Based in Tiverton's Broad Lane since 2010, the Centre provides our users with a huge range of activities and events in a safe, welcoming and stimulating environment.
The Centre is open from 9.00 - 3,00pm, five days a week. Everyone can look forward to warm welcome, a friendly and lively atmosphere, and a varied programme of events and activities. A two-course lunch is provided every day, with all food freshly prepared in our own kitchen. No-one ever goes home hungry after one of our lunches! Take a look at our enticing menu - fabulous food, freshly cooked, and great value.
Daily life at The Haven Centre
Daily life in the purpose-adapted building revolves around the large day-room and adjoining dining room. Wonderful cooking smells emanate from our on-site kitchen, and waft around the light and airy centre. With a full and varied range of activities taking place each day, everyone who comes along will find something they enjoy - from singing and music, to handicrafts and creative arts. If you can drag yourself away from the hustle and bustle of the main room, then the Activities room is well-stocked with games, puzzles and books - ideal to relax in front of after another excellent lunch! We also boast a Therapy Treatment room, which offers pampering treats alongside therapies, and a regular foot treatment clinic. With so much to do, The Haven Centre can stimulate and engage every person there - it's impossible to spend time there and not smile!
The Centre is staffed by our trained, experienced staff, backed up by our enthusiastic volunteers. The emphasis is on ensuring that everyone using the service is safe, well-looked after and stimulated. The Haven Centre really is a 'home from home' for our users - a place they look forward to coming, where they are known and respected, and where real friendships can form and blossom.
