The Social Hub
As well as the individual services, the Hub hosts a whole range of services and activities which are open to everyone:
Assisted Bathing Service
Chiropody & Foot Care
HI-Kent Hearing Aid Clinic
Lip Reading Classes
Meeting Room & Hub Hire
We have two charity shops which provide us with additional income to support the charity’s needs.
There is a shop within the Hub which is open to the public but it also allows our members to retain some independence when buying cards, sweets or clothes. Additionally, we have our main Charity Shop located within our EC30 Cafe in Recreation Ground Road.
Donations are always needed and greatly received (during open hours) as we are the only local independent charity operating a shop in the High Street.
This is our club designed for those with early to mid-stage dementia and they meet every Monday, Wednesday & Thursday from 10:00am to 3:00pm.
The team are passionate about ensuring it is a social day with a range of brain stimulating activities and including a light lunch.
We understand the challenges that Dementia can bring. Our dementia group has been designed to give some respite care to families or carers of the person suffering with this condition, knowing they are in a safe environment.
EC30 in partnership with us.
The main focus of the project is to deliver valuable services that are required in and around the locality of Tenterden. Working within the Ashford rural primary care network, social prescribing has become a key component to universal personalised care. Allowing for a more holistic approach to care, focusing on the needs of an individual.
The role of the social prescribers is to connect service users to local community groups which enable them to receive practical and emotional support, we also have a cafe and charity shop on site.
They can also assist with signposting to other agencies including GPs, pharmacies, police, job centres, social care services, housing associations and allied health professionals.
