Association of Teesdale Day Clubs

Teesdale Day Clubs offer a warm, friendly, caring social and eating experience to adults in our most isolated Teesdale towns and villages.

Many club members using our services are older people who may not have a great deal of social contact, will live alone, may find it difficult to prepare themselves a hot meal and cannot get out of the house easily or very often.

Our aim is to add a sparkle to the weekly lives of those people who are the most lonely and isolated in your community - so if you want to help us spread the sparkle please get in touch.
