Welcome to COATS Crowthorne. We are a local charity set up in 1966 to provide a Centre to meet and socialise for the local Senior community. The Centre provides companionship, healthy lunches, teas, stimulating activities, entertainment and services for older people in the local community in addition to providing respite for their carers. Find out more.
From Monday 9th of August some of the previous covid measures will be relaxed at the COATS Centre. We have responded to the changes in the rules announced on the 19th July by reviewing our operations and consulting with staff and our Visitors. We have updated our procedures to ensure the safety and confidence of our Visitors while creating a happy and fulfilling day at the COATS Centre. We have retained: testing, temperature and health checks, hand hygiene and regular cleaning. We have reduced the social distancing from 2 metres to 1 metre and abandoned the Visitor, staff and volunteer "bubbles". Mask wearing will be required on arrival and for close contact situations but will be left to the discretion of our Visitors under all other circumstances. We are committed to keeping all staff, Visitors and volunteers safe during their time at COATS. We are now in a position to start to take on new Visitors so please call Bernie on 01344 773464 to arrange a visit.
