OLDER & ACTIVE IN EAST KILBRIDE

We are updating our website to reflect our change in name to Older & Active in East Kilbride. 

We have introduced new services over the last couple of years so we wanted to make sure that people were aware of what our main aims are and what we have on offer.
Our main aim is to tackle social isolation in older and disabled in East Kilbride and surrounding areas
Older & Active in East Kilbride will be our umbrella organisation and will include our existing services including our Shopmobility service, mini-bus service and our community cafe The Meeting Place. Click on the links above to find out more information about our services or call us on 01355 571300
