What’s On

Welcome to our modern community hub providing a welcome space for a coffee, a chance to take part in an activity class or to volunteer to run our community library or not for profit café. The hub is a popular venue for old and young alike, with a footfall of over 180,000 a year there is always someone to talk to or something new to learn. It is places like Age Exchange that take us from being strangers to friends and neighbours, where we are connected, we are communities – and when we are together, we are stronger.

Age Exchange has hosted hundreds of hours of activity classes from seated Pilates and belly dancing for our older customers through to rhyme time for the little ones. Classes develop through the ideas of volunteers and local people, enabling the hub to be driven by the community.

I am a qualified Raynor Massage Therapist. Raynor Massage originates from Australia and is a form of massage, which focuses on the muscular and subtle body energy systems. It has evolved by combining many massage traditions, including; Swedish, Shiatsu, Deep Tissue, Reflexology and Thai Massage.

Massage is an integral part of maintaining our health and wellbeing. When we devote time to looking after ourselves, we feel rejuvenated, healthy and rebalanced. I deeply believe massage has a positive ripple effect and, in our renewed state, enables us to radiate harmony to others.​

Our Caring Together Service has re-opened for face-to-face groups. We know the people we support have had a difficult time with long periods of shielding and without the usual support and connections that they need. We have Covid secure guidelines in place to make sure we keep people safe as they return and groups are running on slightly smaller numbers. Restarting our groups is essential in helping people to rebuild connections and to engage in creative activity. 

We accept new referrals, but it is essential to contact us on 0208 380 9105 or email Aga
