Our Day Centres provide support and friendship for isolated, housebound older people.
Our centres provide meals and refreshments, talks, activities such as crafts, games and bingo, outings in the summer and, most importantly, social companionship. We also provide transport to and from the centres.
We have day centres running in the following areas:
Heworth: St Mary's Parish Church
Chopwell/Blackhall Mill: Blackhall Mill Community Centre
Beacon Lough East: Callender Court (Housing 21)
Wardley: Priory Court (Housing 21) Thursday
Winlaton: Conifer Close Community Centre
There is a cost for the day centre which covers lunch, tea, coffee and biscuits, and a contribution towards transport costs. There will be additional costs for activities such as bingo, raffles and trips.
