Camden centre for older people and those living with dementia officially opens


The newly refurbished Kingsgate Centre, which is providing high quality care in Camden for older people and those living with dementia, was officially opened earlier this month by Mayor of Camden, Cllr Richard Cotton.

Between 2011 and 2016 there had been an 18% reduction in the number of people using day centres in Camden.  Following extensive consultation about the future of adult social care in the borough, the decision was taken to refurbish the Kilburn-based Kingsgate Centre and integrate the services that were previously run from Raglan House, Netherwood Day Centre and Charlie Ratchford Resource Centre into it.

Having played a key role in its design and development, residents began using the completed centre in March this year. Today they joined families and carers, staff, local community organisations, Camden councillors, and local MP Tulip Siddiq, to celebrate the official opening.
