How we started
The Millstream Centre has been established in Benson Oxfordshire for many years mainly supporting our older villagers in the surrounding area.
The Centre is a relaxed meeting place for senior residents of Benson and the surrounding villages.
We want to support our customers to live independently, outside the care system, for as long as possible, by giving them good nourishment, enjoyable pastimes, and friendship.
Each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, we provide a healthy two-course home-cooked meal. We organise differing activities such as a seated keep-fit class, a sing-along choir, hand bell ringing, crafts, a film afternoon, quizzes, talks, and board games – all in a relaxed atmosphere.
The Centre is staffed by a Centre Manager and a Cook.
They are supported by a team of able volunteers helping in the kitchen and dining room, by driving, or by running enjoyable activities for our customers.

With the Centre closed for public use during the pandemic, all our focus is on providing our outreach services under the banner of the Millstream Community Hub supporting all those in need in the surrounding area.
