Equality and Diversity is very important to us. We recognise and value individual differences and seek to treat people fairly with respect.
Our raison d'être is, on a basic level, to provide a nourishing freshly cooked meal for senior citizens in our area. However, it extends beyond that, and as we are open Mondays to Thursdays from 10.00am until 1.30pm, it becomes a looked-forward-to day out for many of our clients, giving them the opportunity to socialise with others. This is especially valuable for some, particularly if they are housebound for most of the time, giving them a much needed break from loneliness and isolation. In addition, it can give carers some respite without the guilt they sometimes feel when they have time to themselves. We also arrange days out and entertainment which helps to keep members mentally stimulated giving them something to look forward to. A volunteer drivers’ scheme is in place to reach out to the isolated and housebound.
