What our members say

"My family has always supported WADE in the past. Indeed, 40 years ago when my sister and I were at The Holt, we volunteered at WADE. So when the time came for my parents to need help, I was particularly grateful to find WADE was there for us and the staff at WADE were still willing to go that extra mile - with a smile - to help us through a difficult time."

Gillian Howell

"Staff are very caring and it is a delight to come to WADE each week. The members are so friendly and the food is excellent."

Barbie Mattacks

"I couldn't wait to come back to Wade after a spell in hospital. One word describes WADE - 'Perfect'."

Miriam Terry

"My husband and I would like to thank you for the excellent service you provide at WADE. Doreen has enjoyed coming to you and always raved about the lunches! We too have appreciated the break of a few hours that her days at WADE have afforded us."

Patricia Robson (daughter in-law)
