Cape Community Day Care Centre in Smethwick is an award-winning day care centre led and run by a strong volunteer and community team who bring together older and vulnerable people, offering a wide range of support and activities.
2023 has already seen some fabulous activities and events – including bike riding lessons for the over 75s, visits to Trentham Gardens and Coronation Street, craft sessions and youth club activities for six to 16-year-olds.
For the King’s Coronation in May, more than 60 older people (including one lady who was 98 on the day!) came to a celebration event at the centre, which included fish and chips, afternoon tea, a King Charles educational quiz and lots of dancing. Kalici Drummers also performed and allowed attendees to have a go on the drums.
Find out more about what’s on offer by visiting the Cape Community Day Care charity website. The centre is on Halberton Street, just off Dudley Road, Cape Hill.
Other services include the Cape ‘click & chat’ digital introduction, hot meals on wheels for people who are isolated, a parent and toddler group, a visiting and befriending service, and sessions to support mental and physical activity.
