Fully supported day care in a fun and friendly environment

Days at The Haven


High quality day care in a fun and friendly environment

Based at The Haven Community Hub in Westcliff-on-Sea, Days at The Haven aims to improve the quality of life for those who enjoy getting out and about and living life to the fullest but who need a little help to do so.

Staffed by trained volunteers from local care agency, Doris Jones and supported by volunteers from Age Concern Southend, Days at The Haven provide an opportunity to engage and socialise in a safe and friendly environment.

Costs & Booking

The centre will be open Monday to Friday between 10am and 3.30pm and bookings are available for a half day (£45) or a full day (£80). A hot, two course meal is included on both half and full days and will be provided by our community cafe, Treat Street Cafe and a full schedule of activities will run throughout the day ranging from music and art to gentle exercise and mindfulness.

All potential clients are offered a free half day trial session so we can access their needs and see what activities they might enjoy.

Getting There

Volunteers may be able to provide transport to and from The Haven Community Hub if the service is required. There is plenty of public transport including bus services and trains close by or parking is available at Ceylon Road car park, just a few minutes walk from the hub.

Care for the Individual 

The needs and expectations of each visitor will be thoroughly accessed, on site at The Haven, before they formally attend the centre. This way, visitors will be familiar with the environment, and the day centre team will have a detailed understanding of the individual requirements of the attendee.

Volunteers will help with the days activities, whilst fully trained care assistants provide support with individual’s needs through the day.
