We, like most people in the community, are keeping informed about the spread of Coronavirus. We are continuing to follow the guidance from Public Health England, the Chief Scientific and the Chief Medical Officers. 

At present all of our services are operating as normal, continuing to provide some of the most vulnerable older people in Bolton with the support they need and helping those 50+ remain socially active.

The advice is that if you develop a fever (temperature over 37.8c) or have a new and persistent cough to stay at home for 7 days.

At this time, we ask that those who are experiencing these symptoms to please reduce the risk to our clients, staff and volunteers by NOT visiting our centres. Many older people may be concerned about Coronavirus so it is important to keep in touch with them on a regular basis and offer them support where needed.

If you have any concerns or need any advice please call us on 01204 382411 or 01204 701525.

We are reviewing the official guidelines daily. Please look out for any announcements and regular updates on this page, on our Twitter and on our Facebook page.
