Milan Day Centre in Dartford specialises in promoting independence and well-being among a close community of South Asian residents in the area.


Recognising that living in a foreign country can easily lead to a sense of isolation, the centre aims to create a greater sense of social inclusion.

Having a place where you feel you ‘belong’ is further enhanced though bilingual care workers, while well-being and relaxation will be the focus for therapeutic hand, neck and shoulder massages which will shortly be delivered to 30 lucky attendants by complimentary therapists.

Commenting on the Community Grant from Bluebird Care Gravesham & Dartford, Care Manager Denise said:
For community centers across the country, finance is always tight, but we wanted to recognise the tremendous difference the Milan Day Center makes in the lives of those living in the local community.
Kuldup, the Day Centre Team Leader added:
When we announced the news of the grant to attendees of the Day Centre and how we hoped it would help them, the smiles seen on their faces said more than any words of thanks ever would.

It is such a great to help a centre such as this one, which is a valuable asset to the local community.
