At Tenterden Day Centre we do all we can to help older people and those with a disability enjoy the ordinary activities in life, and give them the opportunity to take part in as many activities as possible.
The core activities ensure that our members (not clients or service users, as people who use our services are members of our community) maintain their independence through informed choices whilst retaining their individuality, dignity, privacy and confidentiality in a safe, friendly, happy environment through the provision of social interaction, entertainment, quality meals and transport.
Tenterden and District Day Centre is a registered charity which consists of three divisions, each with its own specialist area:-
Tenterden Day Centre
Providing a place for older people in the local community to meet in a supportive social environment, have lunch, use our facilities and join in activities. We have up to 30 regular members every weekday, with further spaces for people to drop in for lunch. Our older persons services are available to anyone over the age of 50.
Helping Hands is a domestic agency within the Day Centre providing domestic help, and support for the elderly and disabled to remain their own homes. Clients do not have to be attending the day centre to receive our service.
Tenterden Disabled in Action
Tenterden Disabled in Action has its own extension at the Day Centre where clients can meet friends and other people in a similar situation. Currently serving more than 50 regular members, TDIA runs regular trips and activities, providing a vital service to the local community. Our disability services are open to all adults 18+.
New Members and Supporters
We are always looking for new members and supporters; so if you think we can help or if you would like to meet new people, follow your interests and hobbies or even learn new ones, then please give us a call on 01580 762882 and talk to one of our friendly team.
Tenterden and District Day Centre needs your support to maintain its services to the elderly and vulnerable in Tenterden. We are part funded by Kent County Council, but need to raise the remainder of our running costs from member’s subscriptions, donations and fundraising. There are many ways in which you can support us.
