The Beacon is part of Mayfair Community Centre. The Centre’s facilities provide services, support, activities  and information for the local community.

The Beacon is currently open for pre-booked sessions on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 10am – 4pm. Alternative events and activities are provided on Tuesdays.

All staff are fully trained and qualified to help meet your individual care and support needs and to support your family.

The Beacon has a varied activity programme to encourage mental and physical health and wellbeing within its caring and supportive environment. Staff can also help you to access Mayfair’s other activities.

We offer a FREE half day visit to enable you to ask questions and see if we could support you in the way you wish. We encourage friends or family members to come with you initially, especially while you are settling in.

  • Social Isolation
  • Physical Disabilities

Examples of regular activities include:

  • Small Pot Gardening
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Cookery sessions
  • Tablets for online use
  • Dominoes, cards, scrabble, jigsaws and other board games
