Day Opportunities for the Over 50s

We have three centres across the city (the Barbican, Mount Gould and Plymstock) which are open 5 days a week and offer a wide range of quality day activities, freshly cooked meals and a friendly atmosphere supported by experienced staff. 

Active Ageing Centres

Situated on the Barbican and in Plymstock are our lively Active Ageing Centres, where people over 50 can meet others socially and join in with many activities on offer.


You can book into our varied activities programme, or simply drop in for a drink, snack or one of our home cooked lunches.


Health and Well Being

Come and experience the 'feel good' factor by having your hair done, feet tended or gain the benefits of gentle hand and foot massage. 


All our centres offer hairdressing, chiropody and holistic therapy facilities at very reasonable prices.

A warm welcome awaits you at our William and Patricia Venton centre in Mount Gould - A day centre for people who need a little extra support.
