Benson Millstream Centre
The Millstream Centre has been supporting the community in Benson, Oxfordshire for many years. We are starting a phased reopening on Friday 4th February Initially we are opening only on Fridays for 4 weeks and then plan to fully re-open on Monday 28th February. We will continue with our earlier Covid precautions and when fully open provide an increasing range of intesting and stimulating activities along with our delicious lunches. We continue to support the villages of Benson, Ewelme, Berrick Salome, Roke and Preston Crowmarsh using local volunteers, facilities and resources.
We are still ready to provide friendship and support for all those in need
in our community via our Community Hub.
Demand has reduced as our crisis eases but we are ready to ramp up our support should the situation change.
How we work
We have a team of staff and volunteers, all DBS checked, and trained in Covid management, and infection control, understanding the need for confidentiality and carrying identification.
For those in need we offer prescription collection, shopping, hot meals, a ‘Millstream at Home’ service with regular contact support and support to our vaccination centre with drivers etc. Where possible we will pair up a dedicated volunteer with you. Over time, we hope you will build up a good relationship with them.
With the support of our Trustees, subject to our resources, we will continue to change and develop our services to meet your needs during the crisis.
The Benson Millstream Centre is a registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation no. 1163000. It is managed by the trustees in compliance with the rules and regulations set out by the Charity Commission.
The Centre values communication with, and advice from interested local groups and organisations.
This is facilitated by a Liaison Committee comprising, our managers, representatives from local groups (the Church, Patients Panel, Benson Helpline) and the Benson. Ewelme and Berrick Parish Councils. Representatives from South Oxfordshire District Council and Oxfordshire County Council are also invited and attend when their schedules permit.
