At our Hampshire Residential Service residents are able to benefit from the peace and tranquillity of staying in a large Victorian house set in seven acres of beautiful grounds in rural Hampshire. The idyllic setting allows residents a safe, secure and peaceful environment to concentrate on their recovery. The house is surrounded by areas for relaxation, activities and reflection, including a meditation garden and football pitch.
These beautiful grounds host an annual gala dinner each year, cooked by residents for staff and former residents, and it is activities like this that build the strong recovery community in Hampshire. All this is underpinned by more than 40 years’ experience of delivering the Therapeutic Community model which encourages residents to live as one community and gain gradual responsibility as their time progresses.
