Town Mayor Reports upon Visit to Falmouth Age UK

I am delighted to have Falmouth Age UK as my Mayoral Charity.  After visiting the centre I have learnt that Falmouth Age UK certainly gives so much valuable care and assistance to our community.  It  currently supports 93 people over 5 days, some visit all week others just one or two days. The day centre supports people in and around the Falmouth area with day care, transport and social activities. They have qualified care staff who can assist people that need support and those who are independent can come and enjoy a day with activities and socialise with others.
