The Future - Post-pandemic
The Centre at Benson Oxfordshire is now fully open. Due to the uncertainty in respect of the pandemic during this winter we have decided not to actively fund raise until the spring. We will be organising events early in 2022 which will be published here and in our calendar page.
Do keep a look out here for event news.
We are now fully open but continuing to provide the necessary safeguards to protect our customers, volunteers and staff.
The lesson that we have learned from the crisis is that there will always be a small number of our community who will need outreach help and we will continue this service.
With a growing elderly population, and our aim to help people maintain their independence as long as possible, we see a real need to expand our Centre. We have already spent much time planning an expanded and refurbished building with a lounge extension. We already have outline planning permission and approval from our landlord SOHA.
Aware of the impact of the current situation on the Centre we are currently reviewing and refining the plans with a small sub-group. Do keep an eye out here where we will update you on progress both with the plans and funding.
