Age UK Camden runs two Day Centres - one in Hampstead and one in Kings Cross. These day centres are known as our Health and Positive Living hubs, and provide essential services and support to older people in the Camden community.

What to expect
Our hubs offer daily care and support for older people in the Camden community. They're great venues to have a cup of tea, a chat with other clients and get regular, hot meals. At our Great Croft day centre in Kings Cross we have a beautiful sensory garden which clients can enjoy - particularly in the warmer months.
At the end of March our Hubs, Henderson Court in Hampstead and Great Croft in Kings Cross, were transformed into busy operations providing emergency food parcels for three months during the peak of the pandemic. Now they have reopened to Camden’s older residents, where they provide important wellbeing hubs for positive living in later life. To ensure the safety of Camden’s older residents, stringent measures have been followed and a limited number of service users are attending the centres on a rota in bubbles named after plants. Full PPE is in place and the centre is thoroughly cleaned at the end of each day.
What are our hubs for?
Henderson Court in Hampstead and Great Croft in King’s Cross provide a range of activities such as yoga, crafts, singing and trips out, as well as a nutritious hot lunch, for those aged 60 plus.
Both of our Health & Positive Living hubs have expert teams dedicated to supporting and enabling people living with dementia and complex needs to enjoy later life. Daily activities, emotional support, nutritious hot meals and a sense of community open 5 days a week. Rates vary from £25 to £65 per day. Our friendly specialists look forward to giving you or your loved ones a warm welcome.

Other ways to get involved
As a result of the pandemic, unfortunately we have to limit the number of people visiting the them each day. This means we're exploring virtual events that will help us bring support, stimulation and fun to the older people that attend our vibrant Health & Positive Living Hubs. If you have ideas, skills or interests that may work in this way, please get in touch here.
Our Great Croft Hub is located in King's Cross, and within walking distance of Euston Station and Kings Cross St Pancras. Great Croft offers a variety of services and activities for older people, including our sensory garden, which is great for hosting BBQs in the summer!
Henderson Court is located close to Hampstead underground station and a short bus ride from Hampstead Heath. In 2016 Henderson Court celebrated its 50th anniversary and offers Camden residents the opportunity to take part in activities and workshops. The Henderson Court Hub is a place where people can go for company, a chat and a cup of tea.
