There are a range of different groups offering a wide range of activities, befriending, exercise and practical help. Many of the schemes, especially for older people are local and vary from place to place. We can advise you on what’s available where you live.

We also have a number of luncheon clubs in the district.

They are a good chance to have a hot meal in a friendly social environment.

What it costs:

You will need to contribute to the cost of attending day care or a day centre / luncheon club. This depends on how often you attend and your personal circumstances.

Your ability to pay will be assessed and you will be advised by your social worker about this.

Most grant-funded voluntary and community groups make a small charge towards food, refreshments and transport.

There will be a financial assessment prior to individual taking up a service. The individual will know this charge before committing to the service.

How to access or apply for it:

Contact us at the address or phone number above.

Usually you can contact your chosen day centre directly to discuss your interests.

The scheme co-ordinator will usually visit you at home to discuss your options.

If your needs are more specialist or complex we will carry out an assessment at your home. Access to our services is done through our colleagues in Assessment and support who will undertake an initial assessment of service user needs. A referral will then be made to the appropriate centre. A member of the team will then discuss with the individual there current needs and aspirations and will discuss a care plan to reflect those needs of the service user. They will then arrange a introductory visit for the individual.

What is an assessment?

Assess your needs and which day centre is equipped to meet those needs. Assessment is made via an area office.
