Coronavirus Update

Following government advice, Age UK Bristol has suspended all face-to-face appointments and services and are operating over the phone only. We have set up a new Support Hub phone line for older people and their families to cope with the impact of coronavirus [COVID-19] in Bristol. Please visit our Support Hub page for further information. We will continue to support our existing clients during this time.

Opening times

We are open 4 days a week;

Monday and Thursday (Dementia Service, 9.15am - 2.30pm)

Wednesday and Friday (9.30am - 2.00pm)

About the Day Centre

We offer a regular programme of activities that include exercise, dance, arts and crafts, singing, baking, walking, gardening, visits from local school children and outside entertainment. We regularly have 12 - 20 people attend per day, which creates an exciting friendly atmosphere, and a two course hot meal freshly prepared daily in the onsite café.

We offer taster sessions where you come and join in with the day to ensure it fits in with your interests and individual needs.

Transport is provided for those who require it, in and around the Withywood area.

We are funded via Bristol City Council for people meeting their criteria - referrals are made through Bristol city council. Alternatively we offer private places where you can complete a self-referral form.

Where are we located?

The Withywood Centre, Queens Road, Withywood, Bristol, BS13 8QA

How can you access the service?

Ninety percent of referrals must come through Social Services, with provision of ten percent allocated to those who have been identified as having preventative care needs (and do not meet Adult Community Care's strict criteria).

For those with preventative care needs, please contact New Beginnings directly on: 0117 987 8406.
