Who it is for?

The Conduit Road Multi Cultural Day Centre is a single storey day centre for older people over 65 and is open Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm.
The centre is situated in Conduit Road within walking distance of Bedford town centre.

Where it is available?

Local service (Luton, Bedford, Mid Bedfordshire, South Bedfordshire).

What it costs:

Our charges are set and agreed by Bedford Borough Council and we will ask you to pay this charge directly to the centre. We will also discuss this with you when we visit you at home and talk about how you can pay for this service.

How to access or apply for it:

We can only help those whose independence is at the greatest risk if they do not receive a service from us. Bedford Borough’s Community Older People’s Social Work Team is the first point of contact for people interested in attending the centre. A social worker will assess your need for support from health and social services – this is called an "assessment of needs". The assessment helps us to give priority as fairly as we can to those in greatest need of support. A decision will then be made as to whether you are eligible for any services at the centre.
There is no charge for the assessment. The worker will discuss any costs relating to the service(s) you need with you and will arrange for an assessment of your financial circumstances. We can also assess whether there are any benefits that you are entitled to receive.
