Centres and Hubs
Many of our learning, health and employment activities are held in community centres, church halls, libraries and sheltered housing – anywhere we can find low cost or free space.
But we also have our Second Half Centre in North Kensington and New Horizons in Chelsea, as well as hubs in several wards in Westminster. We run an Employment Services Programme from the Positive Age Centre in North Kensington. And our head office is at the St Charles Centre for Health & Wellbeing in North Kensington.
You can find out more about the hundreds of weekly activities we hold by exploring the Activities section.
Leaving a Gift in Your Will
Open Age is raising awareness of leaving a gift to charity in your will. Legacies are an important way to support Open Age, as they help us to plan so that we can be there in the future for older people who need us. As well as providing for your family, friends and other loved ones in your will, please do consider the possibility of leaving a gift to Open Age.
