We're looking for organisations to run the Marie Lloyd Day Care Centre, which will need to accommodate potentially 2 lunch clubs serving older people. We'll be looking for a range of provision that provides complementary services and activities, makes the best use of the available space and demonstrates that the centre meets community need.

On the morning / afternoon there will be a chance to look at the building and meet other organisations that might be interested in future partnerships. There's an office, activity and meeting space available. We're keen to attract the interest of organisations who would be keen to explore co-location and who might lead or be part of a partnership which delivers a range of complementary services and activities.
