The Life Centre is run by Bierley Community Association Ltd, a registered charity and company limited by guarantee since 2010.
“I’ve lived in Bierley for many years and I’d never set foot in the centre until a year after my husband died. I’m really a shy person and I lacked the confidence to go out and meet new people. One day a friend persuaded me to go along to the centre – I can’t remember why – but I’ve never looked back. It was such a warm friendly place and it didn’t take long for me to settle in. I soon got involved in volunteering and now I’m here every week. We meet to use the computers on a Tuesday before we exercise and I come every Friday for my lunch and for Friday Friends. The centre has changed my life.”
