The Social Hub
Room hire & Services
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
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 Health and Wellbeing Centre
Newly opened in April 2021 and operating under the Tenterden Social Hub organisation, EC30 is housed in a renovated NHS property. We joined with NHS Property Services, Ashford PCN and Ivy Court Surgery to open a much-needed community facility.
This centre offers multi-generational support to our community and houses a team of NHS Social Prescribers. Everyone is welcome and we have drop-in and appointment-led sessions. The outside spaces are fully accessible and maintained by volunteers from the community.
We work with many support groups and organisations, some of these just meet informally in the Café and we also offer our meeting rooms for hire.
Our lovely charity shop is a great place to pick up a bargain or two.
