Our mission is to “work in partnership to serve the community”. We do this by partnering with experienced local external agencies to deliver a diverse range of activities and services throughout the week.
The Life Centre
We are delighted to have received a grant from Healthbloom; a Community Interest Company committed to raising money to address health inequalities in Kirklees, Calderdale and Bradford.www.healthbloomcic.org.uk
Since December 2013 we have employed a part-time Senior’s Inclusion Worker to take a lead developing existing services and introducing new ones in consultation with the Senior’s Council.
We have since implemented a new session where older people can drop in on a Friday before lunch to read the papers or chat over a cup of tea/coffee and we have also added new menus at our lunch group, which are proving very popular.
Thursday 6th February saw the launch of our Asda Bus Run for the over 60’s, living in the Bierley area, and provides a service where people are collected from their homes, dropped off at Asda and then returned back home afterwards.
We have also introduced a new programme of activities and trips out during the Friday Friends session and on Tuesdays there is a gentle exercise class led by Leela Peel and a computer club.
If you are interested in joining in any of the activities or would like any information regarding any aspect of the seniors work please contact Chris on 07725 942568 or Sammy on 07502 227072.
