Age Concern Ross-on-Wye and District has adopted this as our Mission Statement:
To promote the well being of all older people and help make life a fulfilling and enjoyable experience.
Our 2 staff members and some 50 volunteers work to enhance the lives of the older members of the community residing in Ross-on-Wye and in these surrounding parishes of South Herefordshire:
Aston Ingham, Brampton Abbotts, Bridstow, Ganarew, Goodrich, Hope Mansell, The Lea, Linton, Llangarron, Llanrothal, Marstow, Peterstow, Ross Rural, Sollers Hope, Upton Bishop, Walford, Welsh Bicknor, Welsh Newton, Weston-Under-Penyard, Whitchurch and Yatton.
Our advice centre, where we also have our offices, is at 46 Broad Street, Ross-on-Wye, HR9 7DY and is open to callers either in person or on the phone (01989 763887) from 12:30-2:30pm Monday, and 10:00 to 12:00 Tuesday to Thursday.
We can be found on Broad Street in the passageway between Cornwalls the butchers and the Oxfam Charity Shop:
Another entrance is through the gate at the end of the top part of the Maltings (Sainsbury’s) Car Park off Henry Street. This one, however, has three steps to negotiate:
In Broad Street and in the car park just follow the instructions on our sign telling you to press the buzzer for our entry-phone and one of our volunteers will let you in or, if you need help, come to assist you.
