Who are we and what do we do?
We are located in Netley Marsh near Totton. We use our nearby community and meet up with friends in Ringwood, Chandlers Ford, Verwood and New Milton. Service users live all over the New Forest and some people come from Southampton. We can offer local transport to those who may need it.
We aim to be a fully accessible service. Current services users include those who have a visual impairment, hearing impairment, wheelchair users and people with complex communication needs. We are all trained in the use of Makaton.
We run Social evenings, outings and holidays to further expand our range of social and independence- building opportunities.
Person centred approach- we will work with you and your parents or carers to best support you. We offer a key worker scheme as well as individual support plans to make sure we understand your needs. We are an independent service so can offer the flexibility to meet most peoples needs.
We welcome new challenges and ideas and are always keen to hear service users opinions.
