What we do

  • We give advice

    Our trained advisors offer free information and advice to older people and their families. In 2016 our advisers helped local older people to claim over £500,000 that they were entitled to.

  • We offer home help

    We offer home support services to help with shopping, cleaning, and other household tasks. We can also help to get you out and about or accompany you to appointments or providing companionship to help you do the things you like to do such as hobbies, crafts, reading or outings.

  • We sell furniture

    We stock a large range of donated furniture and a selection of new decorative items at affordable prices. Pop in and see what we have to offer.

    We also accept donations and are able to collect your unwanted items of furniture.

  • We provide activities

    Our Social Centre offers variety, fun and companionship. Social interaction and stimulation help relieve loneliness and isolation with opportunities to meet new friends, remain more active, and learn new skills.
