We are delighted to announce that the former Southampton Living Well hub run from Holy Family Church in Millbrook, Southampton has relocated to the newly refurbished Oaklands Community Hub in Coxford, Southampton.
Southampton Living Well is a service for older people living in Southampton who are frail, elderly or living with Dementia. The service is run by local charitable social enterprise Social Care in Action, in partnership with Age UK Southampton.
This new service provides a range of community hubs across the city of Southampton so that everyone wishing to use the service can easily access it. There is a wide range of activities that take place throughout the day, from gentle physical exercise, to activities to help with wellbeing and trips out. All activities are centred around the needs of the people that are visiting on any given day.
The service had outgrown the previous location and new premises were sought to enable more people to attend. We were delighted to find the newly refurbished Oaklands Community Hub run by Oaklands Community Pool Limited, another charitable organisation in Southampton. Oaklands Community Hub has excellent facilities including use of a kitchen and is fully accessible for those with mobility issues.
Alison Fisher, Day Opportunities Manager for SCA Care said ‘We are delighted to be relocating our Southampton Living Well hub in this part of the city to the Oaklands Community Hub. We have worked hard to move everything across and are looking forward to using facilities that we didn’t have access to before such as a kitchen. Of course, it is even better to be helping other local charities at the same time’.
Dan Lally, Contracts Manager for Oaklands Community Pool said “This is an excellent new venture for both of our organisations. Having recently refurbished the Hub it is exciting to have this amazing service operating from our premises! I very much look forward to working alongside Alison and all the team for many years.”
