About Kingsbridge Care Hub

Kingsbridge Care Hub is the purpose built community centre, ideally located adjacent to the town's transport connections from which our independent self-financing charity - Kingsbridge Age Concern - operates, serving the Over 55s community in and around Kingsbridge since 1981.  We are wheelchair-accessible on the ground floor with disabled facilities and a stair lift to the first floor.  For the avoidance of doubt, we are not connected with Age UK.

We provide freshly prepared, nutritious 3-course meals Monday to Friday for clients to enjoy within the Care Hub or delivered to their homes via our own Meals on Wheels service serving a large geographical area. As the meals are prepared by us on site from scratch, we are able to cater for dietary requirements provided we are notified in advance.  We also offer a  Saturday morning breakfast service which is open to any age group and, as such, is a popular venue for our senior citizens who wish to invite their extended family and friends to join them.

We aim to provide an active social care and wellbeing service for our clients (together with the families or carers who support them) by offering a range of activities and support at the Care Hub.  These include gentle exercise classes with qualified trainers; arts and crafts groups; coffee mornings; Repair Cafes; Mustard Tree Cancer Outreach groups; community-led Compassionate Cafes and Alzheimer Society Memory Cafes; sing-along music sessions; play reading and amateur theatre groups; free Legal Advice Clinics and our own  welfare and benefit Advice Centre open from 9.00am - 2.00pm Monday to Friday.

Our annual Christmas party catering for up to 30 guests on Christmas Day is a very special occasion as we endeavour to ensure no-one need be alone at that time. It is difficult to know who enjoys the day the most - the diners or the willing volunteers without whom the event could not happen each year.

The Care Hub has a number of light, bright, well equipped rooms suitable for a variety of uses available to hire by individuals, local groups or associations at very reasonable rates and our team are happy to cater for private functions, whether birthdays, special occasions, wakes, etc.

Our Team

We operate with a blended mix of paid staff and dedicated volunteers, many of whom have been involved for a number of years and are familiar friendly faces to our regulars.

But whether paid or not, the whole team under Chairman Graham Smith share a common aim – to help people remain as independent as possible, in their own homes, and to offer social interaction and a caring ‘eye’.

From our cooks who produce the nutritious range of delicious meals to the dining room assistants who serve with a smile;  our essential kitchen assistants without whom we simply could not manage and the friendly drivers who deliver the Meals on Wheels; to the admin support in the offices upstairs, the Care Hub team enjoy working together and having fun.

If you think you might like to join us to help keep our service running smoothly, do please get in touch – volunteer roles are always available, together with occasional part-time paid positions.
