Age Concern Guernsey is a Guernsey charity which was founded in 1993 to provide support and social events for elderly people.
The charity organises three social centres in Guernsey, managed by volunteers. Each centre meets on one afternoon a week.
Members come to play games such as dominoes, cards or scrabble, and to enjoy a cup of tea/coffee and biscuits or cake over a chat. A short Bingo session is also held, and possibly a raffle.
There is a nominal annual membership fee of £3 per person. At the centres members pay 50p contribution towards expenses, plus a further contribution of 50p if they use one of our minibuses.
As well as the three weekly centres, there is a programme of other events, including Easter, Harvest and Carol Services, lunches and afternoon teas.
The charity operates a fleet of four minibuses in Guernsey driven by volunteer drivers, which are available to take members to and from the centres and other events if required (available seats permitting).
All Guernsey residents over the age of 65 are very welcome to become members. Please contact anybody on our social centres page. Unfortunately we cannot always guarantee attendance at a particular centre, as this depends on the availability of places.
