The Bridge, formally St John’s Community Centre has operated as a charity since 1988. We provide services for older people who live in and around Richmondshire North Yorkshire offering day service and our reach services enabling them to continue living independent lives in their own home.
Monday, Wednesday & Friday Club
On Monday, Wednesday and Friday people come to The Bridge where they are supported and able to make new friends and enjoy social activities. We have well trained staff members who ensure that the people are offered practical support whilst ensuring independence.
Assisted Shopping Service
Many people wish to do their own shopping even though they may need help in doing so. Supporting people by taking them to the shops enables people to continue make choices about the things they spend their money on. It often helps them to keep in touch with the life of the community in which they live.
Richmondshire Internet Shopping Service
This service is for those who are unable to go out and shop themselves. We send a volunteer to your home with a laptop and internet connection and help you to shop. Your groceries will be delivered by the supermarket you have placed the order with on a day and time that is convienient to you.

We will match you to a suitable volunteer who will sit with your relative whilst you have a break. This could be between one to four hours.
