03 Sep Age Concern Colchester’s new centre to benefit older people
Colchester Borough Council and Age Concern Colchester are working together to improve facilities and services for older people in Colchester.
Age Concern Colchester recently opened its new centre on North Hill offering support services and activities for the borough’s older residents and their families. To support this initiative and align services, the council is working with Age Concern Colchester to bring its own activity centre currently in Lion Walk in line with this new facility.
The partnership provides a more sustainable way forward with a single, accessible town centre location, offering great support and activities for older people.
Under the agreement, the council will provide a two year grant to the registered charity to support their new facility and during October move the 180 members from Lion Walk, some of whom already use the charities’ new facility, to the Age Concern centre.
