We believe in a fair and equal society where people and communities can live the lives they choose
For over 30 years, we’ve been promoting dignity and independence for all people, particularly those in later life, people living with a long-term health condition and carers. What makes us different is our person-centred approach. We understand that each individual has different needs, so we work closely with people to understand what really matters for them and to help them lead independent and fulfilling lives.
Based in Bournemouth, we offer services across South-Central England.
We can help you
We can speak up on your behalf, offer assistance to manage some day-to-day activities, provide support and advice, and much more. Together we will make your voice heard and find solutions that will help you be happier.

How we make a difference to people and our community
Karen was living a very muddled life due to her long term and mental health conditions. Although she was trying hard to cope with it and took all her medications, she lacked confidence and she had no real direction, or any understanding of how to change or improve her situation. When she heard about our health coaching service “My Health My Way” from her doctor, she decided to give it a try.
