Local Community information

Hastings Voluntary Action

Central Hall is being developed into a one stop shop supporting people of 50 and over in Hastings to age well. This is a partnership project between Hastings Voluntary Action and Age UK East Sussex and the vision is to provide multi agency advice, support and guidance, activities and opportunities such as volunteering and adult education. At the hub of the development is a friendly community café currently open Tuesdays and Fridays from 10-1pm and a bookable lunch club with activities running from Thurs 5th March.

Central Hall Lunch Club 11-2pm starting 5th March


Come and enjoy a two-course meal for £6.50 cooked and served by students from East Sussex College Groups Hospitality and Catering Department.

Take part in activities such as card/board games, craft, pampering treats or just a warm comfy space to sit back and chat or read the paper.


Our lunch club runs on the first Thursday of each month- places must be booked in advance by calling 01424 400207. 

Central Hall is just along from The Body Shop and offers advice, support, activities and opportunities such as volunteering and adult education to people of 50 and over.

Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) work with the NHS, especially in GP surgeries, to help steer NHS treatment by using the experiences and evaluations of NHS patients.

Patient Participants use lived experience to influence the way patients are treated by GPs and medical professionals. The week also promote the work of the National Association of Patient Participation,(NAPP), which allows patient participation groups to work together nationally.

For more information please follow the link: and see the 'Have you say' tab at the top of this page for our own group information. 

Our Patient Participation Group recently helped organise one of a series of events in the town where Dr Elena Mucci, Consultant in Elderly Care, spoke about 'Avoiding Frailty in Older Age'. These events were extremely successful and donations amounted to over £500.00. The PPG members presented Dr Mucci with the cheque for her chosen charity, Friends of the Conquest. There are hopes that these events may be held again in the future due to their success and popularity; please check back as we will advertise these events on our website and our PPG noticeboards at each site.
