What we do
Burwell Day Dentre

We are very lucky to have such a wonderful resource as the Burwell and District Day Centre in the village. In addition to providing hot, freshly cooked meals on five days of the week, it also offers entertainment and good companionship in congenial surroundings. The Centre was purpose built in 1989 and has undergone refurbishment over the last few years.

As a local Registered Charity (No 1003439), Burwell and District Day Centre is not funded by any statutory body. We sell a given number of places per day to Social Services who make a quarterly payment to us. However, this by no means meets all the costs and overheads of running this very important and essential community resource. We are therefore heavily dependent upon fundraising efforts and the support of members and friends who make donations (often small but nevertheless critical to our funds).

    Services available at the Centre include:
  • Coffee, tea & lunch drop-in facility
  • Entertainment & Talks
  • Weekly hairdressing
  • Chiropody
  • Massage
  • Charity Shop
  • Mobile Library

The Day Centre also runs a ‘Meals on Wheels’ service for village residents, providing a hot meal and essential social contact for many people.

Burwell and District Day Centre is guided by an executive committee who operate voluntarily, and a small number of paid staff perform the day to day running of the Centre.

A very valuable contribution comes from local volunteers who assist with:

  • Preparation, serving and clearing away of lunch
  • Serving hot drinks etc.
  • Driving the minibus
  • Escorting on the minibus
  • Massage
  • Charity Shop
  • Meal deliveries

The Day Centre is available for private hire by groups and individuals at competitive rates.

    Regular user groups include:
  • Music Circle
  • Burwell Sight
  • CAMTAD
  • WEA

For further information about the Day Centre, please telephone the office or call in for a chat with a member of staff.

Our aim is to provide the best possible facilities for people of various age groups, cultures and abilities

The Day Centre is available for private hire by groups and individuals at competitive rates.
