Participating in their activities can introduce you to a number of other services that might be of interest or help to you.
“I feel so much safer knowing I have people around me I can ask and trust. When you can’t go out and enjoy a good natter it’s really nice to have someone come to me.”
“I lost my wife some years ago now, I really thought that was it for me, I gave up. My son phoned the centre to arrange for me to come for a visit and I really enjoyed it, there’s lots to do; crafts, games and I love the quizzes.”
Most of Age UK CAP’s activities take place in Day Centres and Friendship Clubs throughout Peterborough. Tea or coffee is offered and a hot meal is usually provided. Games, quizzes, entertainment, speakers and sometimes outings can be a part of the day.
They also offer friendship and support in the form of regular contact from a fully trained volunteer, either by a visit to your home or a telephone call.
First sessions of day centres and friendship clubs are free, so you can see if you like it. Friendship calls and visits are also free.
Costs apply for ongoing participation in the centres and clubs. Please contact them for information.
