Newmarket Day Centre CIO

Charity description

Newmarket Day Centre CIO logo
Newmarket Day Centre CIO is a successful independent community resource working with retired
and frail older people to enable them to have and enjoy a better
‘Quality of Life’. To do this the Day Centre has to raise all the
money it requires through fund raising initiatives
Proven track

The centre has been established for 31 years
and over the last few years there have been changes in the way health
and social services have financially supported older people to
continue to live independently in their own home.

Changes in
financial support

Previously health and social
services used to support the Day Centre through grant aid which was
used to part finance the Day Care Services but this was changed to
individual Personal Budgets when people are assessed as needing more
support to be able to remain in their own home. The number of
referrals through health and social care are fewer but overall demand
for services has increased as more people are remaining in their own
homes and as a result new innovative services are planned to enable
people to continue their involvement in the community.

Day Centre is a registered charity, which has recently converted to a CIO. It is a community resource
providing a wide range of quality services and the money to do this
has to be raised each year. The end of grant aid from health and
social care has meant that an ever increasing sum is needed so that
the Day Centre can continue to support and help older people to
remain in their local community.
