Nubian Life Resource Centre

Resource Centre for African & African Caribbean community

What does it do?

Nubian Life Resource Centre is a successful provider of community care services to African-Caribbean elders living within the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham (LBHF) since 1982. We are situated on the white city Estate which is classified as one of England most deprived wards.

Services
Working successfully in partnership with a range of statutory, independent and voluntary agencies has enabled us to deliver a range of services that are supported by skilled staff and management structures, including:
  • Day-care Provision
  • Luncheon Club
  • Drop-in
  • Transport Service
Education
Nubian Life aims to expand its activities to include all aspects of leisure and recreation - education and IT has played a huge part in the empowerment of elders.

Nubian Life has created programmes which aim to give clients the opportunity to rediscover learning. So come along and meet people like yourself who are learning new skills, refreshing or improving old skills.

The Learning Suite encourages the elders to learn at their own pace in a relaxed atmosphere, and since it was established it has given hundreds of black elders the opportunity to explore new skills.

Activities
Our service users are encouraged to take part in many activities at the centre, in addition to going on day-trips and holidays. In recent years, we have visited Gambia and Turkey and our members are currently looking forward to our forthcoming trip to Egypt. 

The centre has a range of activities every day, including exercise classes, Tai Chi, traditional card games, bingo and Family Fellowships groups.

Our educational programmes have also proved to be very popular and the centre will be offering classes in digital photography, tile painting, flower arranging, and many others.

The centre also has a computer IT suite (situated on the first floor) where many of our service users learn how to use a computer and in particular how to send emails. The centre currently has a volunteer that comes in once a week to support learners.

Who it is for?

Nubian Life provides daily services to 65 elders with a range of health and social needs. Since 1999, Nubian Life’s waiting list has steadily increased, currently it stands at 67 clients.
