The Dracaena Centre

We are the Dracaena Centre, a registered charity focused upon enhancing our local community by enriching the lives of our residents.

At the Dracaena Centre we're aware that strong communities are built of empowered individuals. So by providing guidance, support and understanding, all within an open and inclusive environment, we know we can help residents and their wider community to develop and prosper.

Our position between the voluntary, statutory and private sectors, coupled with strong partnerships, allows Dracaena to deliver a responsive and flexible set of services with energy, commitment and enthusiasm, while maximising resources to everyone's benefit.

We provide a welcoming, safe and inclusive environment, a space where diversity is celebrated and equality nurtured. By improving the quality of one person's life, the lives of those they are closely connected to can be enhanced, and the positive outcomes spread. We take pride in making a real and lasting difference to the futures of people within our community.

The help we provide comes from within our 4 key delivery strands. Those of:
Community Support, Health & Well-being, Sport & Leisure, Education & Training

If you hadn't heard of the Dracaena Centre before, weren't quite sure what went on here or just assumed our facilities weren't available to you, we really hope you explore the Centre and discover the vast range of opportunities and support on offer.

At Dracaena, everyone is afforded the same warm welcome and the chance to enrich their lives.
