Would you like to liven up your social life, be part of a vibrant community of older people and maybe take up some enjoyable new hobbies or carry on enjoying favourite ones? Then join us and become part of Pannel Croft’s new day service for older adults. If you, or someone you know, is a Birmingham resident aged 55 or over and having difficulty maintaining old friendships or making new ones then this service could be just the thing.
We’re be open 4 days a week and offer a choice of things to do including gentle exercise, craft and recreational activities. You’ll be able to get a meal in our restaurant, a snack in our café and even go shopping at the Village Shop. Our chef can also do take-away meals if you prefer to eat in the evening. Thursday is market day when a range of stallholders take over the Village Street.
Joining the day service automatically gives you membership of the Village which means you can join residents and other members for social events and outings in the evening and at weekends (additional fees may apply).
If you meet their eligibility criteria, you may get financial help to pay for the service through Birmingham City Council; contact your local social work team for information or talk to us.
If you are interested in finding out more about what we have to offer, please telephone the Village Manager on 0121 503 1000.
We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all who have supported our villages and residents over the last few months. And say thank you to the NHS and all key workers across the UK too as well as sending our thoughts to all communities where loved ones have been lost.
This video features our CEO, Mick Laverty, alongside some of our residents, to explain how the last few months have been and how we have so far achieved our mission to protect our community and create a safe haven for all.
