The Deirdre Knight Centre is a voluntary sector establishment run by a Voluntary Management Committee providing day care for older people.
The centre was first opened on 28th October 1987 by Lady Strathmore, with a second extension being completed in July 2003. The centre was originally known as Forfar Day Care but was renamed the Deirdre Knight Centre in 2014 in memory of Deirdre who was one of the original founders of the centre and a driving force in its development over many years.
The centre now provides a purpose built facility for all our service users.
We presently provide 24 places per day and are open Monday to Friday 8.30am - 4.pm. Our service users attend for a period of one to five days depending on their individual needs.
To Attend the Centre
The majority of our referrals come directly from Angus Council Social Work Department. We also have a small number of self referred places which are available for private purchase on a daily basis.
The Centre is registered with the Care Inspectorate and Social Work Improvement Scotland.

We believe that all people regardles of age or disability have the right to live in their own homes as long as they wish to, with the help of whatever services are available, this Centre is proud to offer some of those services.
We also believe that all persons have the right to live their lives with dignity and comfort, as independently as possible and with some adventure.
