Age UK Lancashire's Day Time Support Service provides an opportunity for those in later life to socialise, learn or relearn skills and take part in fun activities.  Services are delivered in a friendly, welcoming and safe small group environment.  The needs of individuals are at the heart of the service which is delivered within appropriate staffing levels, supported by volunteers.

We offer a range of activities which build confidence, promote independence and, most importantly, are engaging and fun!  Our local community based centres are equipped with modern and appropriate facilities and resources. 

We provide a nutritional, healthy two course meal with refreshments and snacks throughout the day.

Day Time Support provides much needed respite to families caring for individuals and important social interaction for older people who are isolated. We have designated centre’s providing both dementia support and enhanced support for people with a need for a higher level of care.  Our professional and qualified team provide a wide ranging variety of enjoyable activities designed to encourage participation and stimulation. 

Our highly trained, dedicated staff and volunteers are experienced in building trust and confidence whilst providing responsive and sensitive care.  Age UK Lancashire specialises in providing quality services to the older people of Lancashire and aims to ensure that each person has a positive experience.  We offer free taster sessions, you are welcome to try us out first to see if our service is what you are looking for.
