Day centres

What does it do?

We have day centres throughout Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin offering a friendly day out for older people who cannot easily get about.

Each day centre is local to its area and they open one day a week, usually between 10.00am and 3.00pm.


Each day centre has its own character. The majority of day centres include some form of activity, such as cards and games, crafts, guest speakers, gentle exercise to music and quizzes.

All day centres provide a hot two course lunch and there are also occasional trips and meals out.

Who it is for?

Older people in the county of Shropshire.

Where it is available?

Local service (South Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin, Bridgnorth, North Shropshire, Oswestry, Shrewsbury and Atcham).

What it costs:

A small charge is made towards the costs and most centres also have a weekly raffle to raise funds.

How to access or apply for it:

Contact our Shrewsbury office on 01743 233 123 for further details.

Additional information:


Generally, transport to and from the day centre is provided by either car or in some areas specially adapted minibus. In some cases members are asked to make their own arrangements.

Further information

Each day centre is run by a team of much valued volunteers who are supported by Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin staff.

Referrals are made to the local Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin office and are usually made by Social Services, GPs, health visitors, family members and friends.
