About this organisation

The St Ives Day Centre, based in St.Ives (Cambridgeshire),  is a unique community charity founded in 1979 with the express aim of providing a 5 day a week day-care service for the elderly, lonely and frail within the local community including St.Ives and surrounding villages.

This non-profit organisation is the only day-care centre of its kind in the St Ives area and provides essential services to its members providing them with transport to/from the Day Care Centre, social contact in a friendly environment and a hot, freshly cooked lunch each day.  Just as important it offers a very much needed break for the members carers many of whom are providing round the clock care with this service providing them perhaps their only respite.

It is run by a small team of dedicated, committed staff and much valued, caring volunteers and is funded by charging a small attendance rate for members, but is also dependent on much appreciated donations and fund raising events organised by the staff, committee, volunteers as well as the members and their relatives.
