The Hop 50+

The Hop 50+ is a unique and vibrant space offering social and physical activities based alongside a cafe. Part of our citywide Ageing Well programme it is the flagship for services for older people. A place where people feel they belong, are valued, and benefit from mutual support.

Hop members and customers come to us to find connections and activities to use existing and learn new skills. They support each other, and many are involved in the ongoing development of our varied activity programme. One day each week focuses on people living with dementia.

About The Hop 50+

The Hop 50+ staff team take time to ensure there is always a warm greeting, and a positive friendly environment for both new and existing customers. With its open kitchen, our café provides freshly cooked excellent food and great coffee without high street prices.  We are open to anyone aged 50+ and their carers.

Our monthly programme of activities includes regular groups alongside specific events and minibus trips. Some of these are led by specialist facilitators others are more informal and led by members or volunteers. These include discussion groups, art classes, a gardening group, play reading and exercise classes.


Fridays provide specialist support and activities for people living with dementia, these are smaller, more structured and quieter sessions so members can focus, enjoy and benefit from their time with us.

I have made some great friends at the Hop and there is always something to join in with, whatever you like to do.

Linda, Hop 50+ Customer

When John was diagnosed with dementia we didn’t know what to do, thank heavens for the Hop Stop. Both John & I have learnt so much; we have met people who have the same worries & anxieties about living with dementia, and knowing there is support when we need it has been invaluable.
