Supporting  young people with disabilities in a caring, nurturing environment.

The Chiltern Centre aims to give each young person a fantastic short break. We want them to have fun!

Offering respite care in Oxfordshire to young people with disabilities, we work with families and carers of young people with a wide spectrum of disabilities and complex health needs. Families can take a much needed break, knowing that their children are in good hands.

We are able to serve families and care givers from any geographical area, but are perfectly placed for those in Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire.

“We are grateful for the great work you and your team do. It was wonderful when a staff member gave a courtesy call back to reassure us that my brother was ok and had eaten/taken meds. It’s these little things that make a difference. Thank you.”

“My son had such a wonderful time with his friends at the weekend.  He LOVED it!  It was so nice for me to have a chat with his friends (who are growing up) and their parents too.  Thank you.”

Staff at Chilterns are exceedingly dedicated and hardworking and have an excellent relationship with those who go there and their parents. My son has been attending Chilterns since it started and it is an integral part of his and our life.
