Day centres

What does it do?

Our centres aim to help people live as independently as possible in their own homes and communities. We provide a wide range of activities, helping people to stay healthy and stimulated. We pay particular attention to cultural and creed needs.

Day centres also provide a break for carers. You can find out about other services which provide carers with a break.
