Providing Day Opportunities In The Community
Nubian Life is a vibrant and successful charity operating a community resource centre in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. It was established in 1995 in direct response to a recognised gap in the service provision within the borough for its aging African Caribbean population. Alongside the provision of activity based care the charity delivers a range of community initiatives, such as the Josiah Braithwaite Community Garden, volunteering opportunities, work placements for local residents as well MSC placements for student social workers.
It means a lot, it starts here, I come here two (2) days a week, I'm not sitting at home alone. Coming here means that I can get out, have a meal and a chat.
Care is very good because you can get away from the house. You meet different people.
Excellent I want to keep them, I really like my bracelet. It was very hard with the beads but I like my earrings.
Yes you’re showing me something different, me love it.

I don’t know what I would do without it right now, Its my second home. The days I am due to come, I am ready by daylight. Its being a second part of me. I'm telling it straight from my heart.
Mum loves it, she is a changed lady, she still need reminding each day as she does not know what day of the week it is, but look forward to going, has loads to tell us in the evenings and even gets ready, with her coat on Saturdays to “go to Club”!! I am so grateful to Nubian Life and so is the family. The change in my Mum is remarkable. She is still forgetful and still repeats herself, but is much happier.
Fantastic! It's such a shame her memory is so poor. You do so much amazing stuff with her. Thanks for sharing.
