  1. Our main office is closed to the public from 23rd March (hopefully if the virus subsides we can re-open)
  2. The phone line will still be operational (01623 753192) so we can still be contacted for shopping, care packages, medication deliveries and information.
     
    If you require assistance and we can help – please call the office on 01623 753192 – there is an ansamachine – leave your name and tel. no. and we will return your call.

We provide a number of regular weekly activities such as seated exercises. We also have walking groups which offer walks at a variety of places for all levels and meet on a regular basis. Contact us for an up to date diary of walks. For all inquiries, telephone 01623 753192



Volunteers

Volunteers are recruited to encourage and support older people to be more active. This can be on a one-to-one basis, or in groups. Why not volunteer and share your hobbies, activities and pleasure time with like-minded individuals. Popular activities include: walking & rambling and seated exercise. If you are a good communicator and enjoy being active & spending time with people, this could be a volunteering opportunity for you. Volunteers are provided with training, an induction pack, ongoing support and travel expenses.

Social Activities

Caring Codgers 

The Caring Codgers is a group of older people in Ashfield, aged 70 plus with mobility problems arising from a variety of conditions including strokes, arthritis, heart problems and general frailty. The group welcomes all genders.

We are a self-help group who meet fortnightly on Thursdays  for information sharing, a chat over a cuppa and a few laughs. We enjoy trips out and have made many close friends within the group. Most of us live alone and have mobility problems, which makes us very vulnerable and we could easily become isolated without our support network. The Caring Codgers is a lifeline for us, providing us with friendships, support, information and much needed laughter. It also provides a break for our carers, allowing them time for relaxation.

Come along, enjoy a cuppa and a chat, making new friends.

Every Wednesday 1.30pm to 3.30pm at £2 per session
