Our Day Centres currently have vacancies for older people who could benefit from the support offered in a friendly group setting.

These services are part of a range of services Age UK Northumberland offer to support you to stay in your own home. Day centres work on the basis that there are members of the community who, for various reasons, find themselves less active and unable to get out and about as they used to.

They still want to enjoy a day out, share a cooked lunch and join in activities at centres which provide the opportunity to spend quality time with others.

Day Centres make an important contribution to the lives of the older generation by acting as a preventative measure for problems caused by lack of social interaction and stimulation.

Our Day Centres assist older people to continue to lead an independent life by allowing them, dignity and independence through activities and events provided.

Service users have many opportunities to contribute to the life of the day centre, through activities that encourage interaction for all involved.
