Charity information

Halstead Day Centre

The Centre is intended for people over 60 who are isolated by either location, type of disability or lack of family support. Our services are broadly preventive, and serve a number of different purposes for different needs. Our main aims are to reduce isolation and encourage social contact away from the home environment, with people who may be facing the same challenges because of isolation and exclusion issues.

Founded 1980

  • Mission statement

    The Day Centre aims to promote the welfare of people over 60 and reduce mental and physical health issues in older people. Our mission is to help older people to be actively involved in their community, while maintaining a degree of independence in their own homes if they wish. Our services include, transport to and from the service users homes, bathing, shopping, 2 course freshly cooked lunch and beverages throughout the day, other activities include, board & card games, debates, quizzes, bingo, jigsaws, craft, outings, and speakers, and a seated daily exercise class. The services users have their own committee and their meetings take place quarterly with the manager, and care coordinator, helping to ensure our activities are meeting the service users and their carers needs, and is a vital part of our on-going program to help us identify how we can improve or develop certain activities. Our overall aim is to just what type and range of help older people want, and adapt our service to suit needs for individuals as well as groups.
