Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, our Day Care Service is operating at a reduced capacity to protect the health and safety of clients and staff. Whilst we are not able to welcome any new or existing clients into regular attendance, please contact the Centre closest to you or your loved one to register your interest and put your name on the waiting list. As and when we are able to safely increase our capacity, we will be in touch.
