The Saxon Day Centre is located in central Orpington and is a friendly, mainstream day care centre operated by Age Concern Orpington & District, a not for profit, charitable company. We cater for elderly clients, including those who are physically frail and/or have dementia and who are in need of a day out from their home environment, or whose carers need a day of respite. We are open from Monday to Friday and currently have capacity for up to 60 clients a day.
Our vision is to offer a thriving and affordable day care centre and to provide valued services to meet the demand of the elderly in the Orpington & District community.
Age Concern Orpington is a not for profit, charitable company. We are a stand-alone organisation, dependant on income generated by the Saxon Day Centre. We are also immensely grateful to benefactors and members of the local community for kind donations as this makes all the difference to us.
