Charity description

Thame and District Day Centre logo
Thame and District Day Centre provide regular, dependable day care, support and friendship to otherwise housebound, frail and often isolated elderly people living in Thame and surrounding villages, including transport, refreshments, a hot lunch, crafts and entertainment.

We have around 60 members in total, who are driven in from their homes by volunteers and meet at the Community Hospital site in Thame up to three days a week. We have a manager and deputy supported by dedicated volunteers and a board of trustees and we aim to:

Provide a caring, sociable and flexible environment meeting individual’s needs

Liaise with and support the carers of our members

Promote choice, dignity and independence

Most importantly staff and volunteers have time to chat and encourage our members to socialise together, creating an atmosphere full of life and warmth.

Thame and District Day Centre is a registered charity relying heavily on a grant from Oxfordshire Social Services. In addition we are becoming increasingly reliant on donations, bequests, other grants, in-house fundraising and membership attendance fees (only £10 per day!) and, in these uncertain times, the need for such support is likely to grow and so we are very grateful for all the help we receive.
