Allens Croft Twilight Support at The Hub has always recognised that is important to combine community development with a regular programme of informal and fun activities which bring older people into contact with each other.

Our diverse programme of social and leisure activities has continued to help older people to overcome feelings of isolation and vulnerability with some older people becoming the key organisers and making the activities run well. Whilst the ACTS project continues to support participants within the local area of Brandwood/ Kings Heath, we are really excited to be able to slowly restart activities at the Hub.
