Age Friendly Community

PramaLife works in Bournemouth, Christchurch, East Dorset and Poole offering a wide range of activities and services which look to directly tackle social isolation and lead to increased personal independence, and help people enjoy life as they age.

Our aim is to see Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole and Dorset recognised by the World Health Organisation as an "Age Friendly Community".

Ageing is something that everyone does. We want it to be an enjoyable experience, where people retain their independence, self-worth and dignity. In achieving this, our Pramalife services are influenced by local older people and carers, then delivered and monitored with their involvement.


The money that is raised within Prama's 10 charity shops, is used to fund PramaLife's community groups and activities, for resources and staff.


There is a Donation Drop-off Centre on the Nuffield Industrial Estate in Poole.


Prama Charity Shops offer set pricing and multi-buy promotions, so you'll never miss a bargain!

Want to join our team? 

We are looking for Care Assistants to support the increasing demand for our care services. Prama has been supporting people coming home from hospital for 40 years, and have created new roles in order to respond to the current rise in the demands for our service. We helped older people feel less isolated before COVID-19 and will continue to do so throughout the pandemic and afterwards too.

PramaCare is a charity, our focus is helping people enjoy life as they age and treating everyone with dignity and respect, clients, staff and volunteers alike.
We need you to be available to work every other weekend for some hours and priority will be given to anyone who can work between 7am and 11am or 5pm-11:30pm but we do have plenty of other calls that need cover.

Message us, or drop us an email at our recruitment team are working today and every day to make sure we can help you help people who need us.

Here's an insight into our induction and training sessions for our new Care Support Workers. For all new CSW's we offer free training.
