How we deliver these aims

We hold regular activities for older people, from arts to yoga. We have worked with the Croydon Dementia Action Alliance to become Dementia Friends, and run a weekly Memory Tree Café. Our Healthier Lifestyle project promotes health and wellbeing, with health checks, healthy eating advice, and chair-based exercise. We provide information and advice to older people and those who care for them. We work with local GPs to identify those most in need of support in our community.
