Our day centres are closed due to the Coronavirus crisis.
We are staying in touch with existing clients but the day centres are not likely to open till spring 2021 at the earliest.
We will be looking for volunteers after the Coronavirus crisis is over and you are welcome to get back in contact then. You will need to be willing to help organise activities, serve lunch, make tea/coffee and help wash up.
You don't have to do all of these things; the most important thing is to be sociable and willing to chat with the older people attending the day centre.
