It's just not fun eating a meal alone. Our enhanced lunch clubs let older people socialise, join in a variety of activities and eat a healthy, home-cooked three-course meal.

The Age UK Oldham enhanced lunch clubs meet on a weekly basis at different locations around the borough and are a great way for older people to stay independent, make friends and try out new activities.

We provide a home-cooked three-course meal and can cater for specific dietary needs if advised in advance.

Our 'enhanced' service enables people who require a little assistance to attend the lunch clubs as carers and volunteers are available to offer support.  Let us know if you have difficulties getting to our lunch clubs as we may be able to help to arrange transport so you can get to the club and home again.

The meal is just one part of the lunchtime experience, we also organise optional activities for attendees, such as quizzes, bingo, gentle exercise and singing, as well as parties at Christmas and other special occasions.


The cost of a three-course meal at one of our enhanced lunch clubs is £4.60.
