Italian Community Association


The Fleet is really proud to offer a customer faced welfare setting for over 60s
within the local community, every Tuesday from 9am – 3pm. It is a chance for the elder generations to get together in a comfortable and well established environment to socialise amongst friends. The day has around 70 people and is usually run by volunteers. We have several services and facilities readily available including:

  • Tea & Coffee
  • 2 course lunch
  • More tea & coffee
  • Bingo activities
  • Knitting

Still unsure – why not have a look at some of the benefits to attending a welfare centre

  1. Combating loneliness – make new friends and decrease your chances of being isolated
  2. Improve your mental well-being – life can be difficult sometimes especially during the winter months, having something to look forward to can help
  3. Continuity – it is nice to have a routine and we would love to be apart of yours
  4. Unity – by attending you are contributing to uniting the community
  5. Encourages creativity and culture – community centres develop a culture of wellbeing – they are there to support the community and by attending free sessions you can alleviate social services and other facilities further improving the community in which you live.
  6. Home from home – community centres are second homes to many, a safe place to enjoy life’s little luxuries whatever they may be. A chat with a friend, a game of bingo, a knitting session, a cup of tea and a biscuit – you decide and we provide.
