We can help

It’s easy to get overwhelmed this time of year, especially with the cost of living rising. We could all do with some extra money in our pockets and help keeping the cost of our energy bills down. So, if you are worried or are struggling, please get in touch, we have lots of resources that can help you through this difficult time.

Sandra Springett is the charity's Chief Officer:

"We are committed to helping older people in the community to stay safe and well in their own homes. We will prioritise those in the greatest need while protecting the safety and well-being of our staff and volunteers. We will continue to monitor updates on COVID-19 from the government and the NHS and act in accordance with their advice."

Our day centre continues to welcome clients

Our day care service provides older people with a comfortable, safe and stimulating environment in which to spend their day. Whether you are looking for an opportunity to socialise confidently or a carer looking for some respite, there are many different benefits from this service.

Our services for you

Expert advice

We offer you free, confidential and expert advice through our information service. If you need to know about social care, housing, scams or legal issues, we are here to help.

Dementia Day Care

Our new Dementia Day Care service combines a safe, enjoyable experience for them with an opportunity for you, the carer, to recharge your batteries for a day.

The Write Partnership

The aim of The Write Partnership is to match older members of our community with pen friends who have common interests or simply share that feeling of excitement when a handwritten letter is posted through the door!

Advocacy advice

Our advocacy service is designed to support you to express your wishes. This might be a simple situation, perhaps to challenge a utility bill, or may be far more complex; perhaps you are being made unhappy by those around you.
