The Age UK Darlington day centre makes an important contribution to the lives of the older generation by acting as a preventative measure for problems caused by lack of social interaction and stimulation. It assists older people to continue to lead an independent life by allowing them dignity and independence through activities and events provided.

Customers have many opportunities to contribute to the life of the day centre, through activities that encourage interaction for all involved. These services are part of a range of services Age UK Darlington has to offer to support you to stay in your own home and help you to lead as independent a life as possible.

You may be concerned about someone, whether you are a relative, a neighbour or a member of the public. Someone may tell you something that has happened to them or you may see or hear something happening to someone that makes you feel uneasy or uncomfortable.

The priority is to keep people safe from harm. The seriousness or extent of abuse is difficult to identify when the abuse is first recognised. Where there is any concern at all, this should be reported for further investigation. We will respond to all concerns.

There are several ways you can report abuse. These include:

Completing the Safeguarding Adults Alert Form (Rich text document) with accompanying Guidance Notes (PDF document) and e-mailing to: ssact@darlington.gcsx.gov.uk, or calling 01325 742030.
