Bromley healthcare Charity - clubs and groups 

We are currently able to support four different areas and are doing this in partnership with a range of specialist charities. Many also gain the support of local volunteers.

Attendance at the clubs and groups is free. 

Because of the specialist nature of some of the groups, you might need to be referred by your local GP.

  • Baby Café: Gives expectant mothers and mothers with new babies breast-feeding support, in a coffee club environment, run by the National Baby Café. 
  • Stroke Club: Supports people recovering from a stroke in a social environment with specialist therapy input, run by the national Stroke Association. 
  • Leg Club: Supports people who are recovering from leg wounds in a social setting with clinical support, run by Bromley Healthcare and The Lindsay Leg Club Foundation. 
  • Walking for Health: Takes people on walks which are led by local volunteers with support from The Ramblers Association and Macmillan Cancer Support.

 Feedback from people who have been to the Leg Club.

Elizabeth Hunter said: “Whilst we’re waiting to have our legs washed and dressed by the nurses, we’re encouraged to join in the chair exercise class. I’ve enjoyed these sessions very much and they are beneficial and fun too.  We get to know other members, male and female, and we exercise whilst socializing and having fun.”
