Donations needed for doorstep deliveries

During the Coronavirus pandemic, we are offering doorstep deliveries for older people who are housebound. We will be delivering meals, groceries and essential medication to doorsteps as well as knitting kits, CDs/DVDs, books and jigsaws. Please help us by donating items for local older people.

Be scams aware

Reports suggest scammers are using Coronavirus as a reason to approach people, over the phone or on the doorstep. Some seem to be offering a bogus shopping service, or other ‘help’ in return for cash. Rest assured our shopping visits are pre-arranged, you will know who to expect and when. Call our office on 01903 731800 before opening the door if you’re unsure.

Coronavirus update - 16 March 2020

We have taken the decision to close our centres to the public from Saturday 21 March onwards. All existing social and activity groups will be put on hold until further notice. This is likely to be at least 12 weeks in line with the Government advice, but may be longer. The closure will be kept under regular review and we will be following Government guidelines closely.
