About us

Newmarket Day Centre is a successful independent community resource working with retired and infirm people to enable them to have and enjoy a better ‘Quality of Life’. Anybody can pop into the Day Centre, as long as they are over 50 years old; that is the only stipulation. If you’re not, you could always bring or borrow someone’s parent or grandparent, the more the merrier!


We have people from all walks of life who regularly attend for fun, friendship and entertainment and there is always plenty of that going on.


Our venue boasts, a drop-in Cafeteria Service, a Hot Plate Meal Delivery Service, Specialised Bath & Shower room, Hearing Aid Clinic, Hair Salon, Podiatry Services, Hair & Beauty Technician, free professional 1/2hour Legal advice; an Emotional Well-Being Service and much more.


We also offer comprehensive day care provision if required. People can also be referred to us through social services to supply part of their care package, which can include a hot, home-cooked meal and help with having a bath.


We provide a wide and varied entertainment and activity programme including Themed Event Days and Live Music to name just a few. Click on our Services tab to see our full range of services and activities or you could browse through our Quarterly Magazine which is also available through the link on the home page.


The atmosphere at the Day Centre is vibrant – not at all what some people expect. Our aim is to help combat loneliness and depression and support independence, social inclusion and retain self-worth.


I have been working at the Day Centre for 19 years and it is wonderful to see the difference that our services have made to so many people. People just have to be encouraged to step into our Day Centre; we can do the rest. We really can make a huge difference to people. We can change lives. If you don’t think so, come and meet our regulars!


Why not pop in and read the newspapers with a full English breakfast and cup of tea or coffee (or maybe something a little stronger from the bar) or treat yourself to lunch or a snack from our extensive menus. We look forward to seeing you!
