We have a number of named areas for the different services on offer which include:
A day centre and drop-in service for those aged 60 and over, which is open Monday to Friday. There is no need for any special referral, just call and arrange to come in for a taster session.
Fully accessible transport can be provided if required. A freshly produced two-course lunch is available cooked in our own five star rated kitchen, using locally sourced ingredients. Activities in Sixty Plus include yoga, chair-based exercise, seated bowls, arts and crafts, collage, reminiscence, bingo, board games and much more. Lunch and classes are available on a drop-in basis.

Our meals on wheels service for Tenterden, has been operating across the district since 2018 and has grown to provide a much needed and welcome support to those living at home.
We offer a freshly cooked two-course hot lunch, direct from our five star rated kitchen, and delivered direct to your door by one of our friendly volunteers. This is available Monday to Friday and also a freshly cooked chilled, ready to re heat, meal for Saturday & Sunday. Assistance with plating up meals is given if required.
There is no obligation to purchase a meal every day. The menu is varied and special dietary needs are catered for.
A day service for adults with either a learning or physical disability. Transport and a hot two-course lunch are provided if required.
A fun and friendly atmosphere with a range of activities both within the Hub and out and about in the local community. Try photography, cooking, arts and crafts, swimming and much more. Taster days available and the Kent Card is accepted.
The Disability Hub covers a wider area that includes Ashford as well and Tenterden.
All three of these groups join together, wherever possible, to create a really positive atmosphere across our site and to allow for more engagement in activities being run.
As well as bringing people to and from the Hub on a daily basis, the fleet of fully accessible minibuses are available to hire to local groups and societies at reasonable rates.
We also work in partnership with Kent County Council to provide the Tenterden Hopper Service which links outlying villages into Tenterden town.
This service provides assistance with domestic tasks and independent living services throughout Tenterden. From laundry, cleaning and shopping to meal preparation and trips out socially and to appointments.
Home Help operatives are all DBS checked and will usually visit the same clients regularly to allow you to get to know them. Contact Helping Hands for a conversation about us helping you in your home
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 2 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 at East Cross (opposite the main junction in Tenterden High Street).
Donations are always needed and greatly received as we are the only local 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 work hard to ensure it is a social day with a range of brain stimulating activities and including a light lunch. Our COGS group has been designed to give some respite to families or carers of
the person suffering with this condition,
knowing they are in a safe environment.
