Plus, by liaising with the Centre Manager, you'll place orders for ingredients and take control of your budgets.

Importantly, you'll enjoy socialising with our customers, rather than hiding away behind-the-scenes.

It's about giving warm, caring service that means our customers leave the day centre brimming with positivity.
