We offer support for disabled children, young people and adults to either access their community, for personal care at home and short breaks, 24 hours a day in Basingstoke and Hampshire.
Personal care at home is also known as domiciliary care, social care or home care. This means that we can support with getting ready for school, washing, dressing, taking medication, eating and any other personal support that they may need.
We offer tailored short breaks, also known as respite or a sitting service, for disabled children and young people or adults. It gives them a chance to do something different and gives parents or carers a break from providing care. It can be for a few hours or a day, as required. We can provide care assistance to you whilst you are on a holiday that you have arranged. We do not provide residential accommodation for short breaks. With our short breaks it’s your choice – go out and have fun, or spend time at home.
For activities, we can support disabled children, young people and adults to take part in local activities that they enjoy doing. This can be activities such as:
For disabled children and young people:
- Scouts or Guides
- after school clubs
- meeting up with friends
- creative arts, drama and music
- sports and fitness
- going to the cinema.
- going shopping
- meeting friends
- sports and fitness
- travelling to college
- going to the pub, cinema, theatre, concerts or a football match.
Through our flexible support you’ll gain new skills, confidence and independence. It’s your choice what you’ll do.
Is it for you?
We support children, young people and adults with any condition or impairment. These include dysphagia, epilepsy, cerebral palsy, autism, physical impairments and learning difficulties.
We will talk with you (and others in your life who you want us to), to find out what’s important and how you like to be supported. Together, we’ll develop a support plan around the things you want to do, with a focus on what you’d like to achieve.

We’ll find support staff who you like and you’ll get on with.
Supporting disabled people for the past 60 years, we know just how much selecting friendly and caring staff matters. We train our staff thoroughly to provide safe and quality support.
You can pay with your direct payments, personal budget, private income or through the local authority.
Book us for an hour or two as you need, or at a regular time that suits you.
