Every day many people walk past the Daycare Centre on Lower Road Shankill unaware of all the activities that go on inside its doors.
Yet for many older people this bulding provides a chance to meet their friends and socialise, an opportunity which might otherwise be difficult when they are no longer able to get out and about easily.
Shankill Old Folks Association provides a variety of services and activities: the Daycare Centre, Meals on Wheels, the Wednesday Tea Club, the monthly Book Sale, and is a focus for a range of volunteering opportunities.
