3AC - The Third Age Centre

The Millennium Third Age Centre (3AC) is a charity providing community resources and delivering community activities to Southampton Charity No. 1082317. The members of the Board of Directors who are the Trustees of the Charity provide the strategic management. Our aim is for the 3AC to become a modern community resource that meets the needs of the community we serve, with a key role in helping to deliver against priorities for the city. Everyone is welcomed at the 3AC. We offer a range of activities here for the public from sewing clubs to yoga. We also have office spaces available to local or start up businesses. Please contact us if you would be interested in any of our activities or spaces. The Third Age Centre is accessible for all. There is access to the building on the pavement level through a door on the side of the building. There is also a lift that goes to all 4 floor. Disabled toilets are on every level.

1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

Our values cover the dementia friendly initiative - we consult with our service users and seek support on actions where needed.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

Ensuring our volunteers and other partners become engaged. We plan to explore this with a workshop.
