Established since 1983, the African Caribbean Care Group (ACCG) runs a lively and friendly Day Care and community service for people aged 50 and over.

This is primarily for African Caribbean people to enable them to access culturally appropriate and affordable health care services but is also open to older people from all backgrounds.

ACCG supports people with long term health conditions, physical disabilities, and mental health to access culturally appropriate health care and activities that alleviate the impact of isolation and loneliness. We support people with increasing high level of need enabling them to maintain connections and social contact within the community.

  • Providing culturally appropriate health and social care

  • Creating opportunities and avenues for self-expression of views and opinions

  • Supporting equal access to our service

  • Involving service users in planning of services to meet individual needs

  • Creating a warm, friendly and welcoming service

  • Working with young people to enhance their understanding of caring needs or older adults in the community

  • Working collaboratively with statutory agencies in the community
