Temporary closure of Southampton Living Well hubs
In light of the government’s latest guidance and guidance from Public Health England regarding the Coronavirus outbreak, we have taken the difficult decision to temporarily suspend the Southampton Living Well hubs from 18th March 2020 until further notice. We will be reviewing this at frequent intervals. This includes all of the venues across Southampton (Oak Lodge, Oaklands, Freemantle, Chamberlayne and Padwell).
The Southampton Living Well hubs support a wide range of people, many of whom are vulnerable or at-risk. We want to ensure that all customers are as safe as possible during this period and minimise the possible risk of spreading the virus.
At a time when ‘self-isolation’ will become necessary for many of the people we support at Southampton Living Well, we will remain in contact with our customers during this difficult period and do what we can to help them. That may include helping with errands or providing others who care for them with some respite time. It can also include time for a telephone call and a chat or discussing any worries that they may have.
We understand that this is a difficult time for everyone, however I’m sure you will understand why we have made this decision. I am looking forward to the time when we can welcome back out customers into the hubs, but in the meantime we will still be here to help them in any way we can.
If you have any questions in the meantime then please don’t hesitate to contact me via email or on my number below.

Feel part of the local community, take part in activities and make new friends. We provide you with a quality and bespoke service to suit your needs.
Southampton Living Well offers daytime activities and a place to go to for older people living in Southampton. Former day care centres have been transformed into thriving activity hubs promoting friendship and fun as well as day trips and activities.
We understand that people have different life experiences and interests – our flexible and tailored approach means we cater for a wide range of requirements.
If life has changed in some way, or you are feeling lonely and would like to meet new people and make new friends, we have a wide range of activities you can choose to join in with.
Examples of our activities include:
- Trips to the seaside, local parks and garden centres
- Lunches out
- Visits to special interest groups such as ‘Open Voices’ at the Mayflower theatre
- Visits to sports grounds to watch a team play such as watching Hampshire play cricket at the Ageas Bowl
We have a number of transport options available, including a door-to-door bus service by our fleet of accessible buses.
A healthy home-cooked lunch and refreshments are offered throughout the day.
Don’t worry if you think it might be difficult for you to do these activities. We can come and visit you to discuss how we can help. We have staff trained in care and support work who can accompany you should you need it.Get in touch today
