Who we are
The Chiltern Centre is a not for profit organisation supporting local families in their everyday lives.
From its roots as a local service, the Chiltern Centre has established itself as a charity able to provide families with an invaluable lifeline over a wide geographical area.
Founded in 2004 as a registered charity for disabled children, the Centre was Initially set up by parents and supporters of local children with disabilities. We have always held a position of high regard within the town and have maintained the support of many local organisations, business and individuals. The Centre has expanded over the years to increase sleep-in capacity and continues to look at ways to improve and enhance the service we deliver.
The Centre is a wonderful purpose-built care home in the heart of Henley on Thames. Safeguarding children and young people is paramount at the Chiltern Centre – and this is reflected in the buildings’ security systems. Our Centre is adapted to meet the needs of disabled children and young adults in our care. Our facilities include a recently upgraded multisensory room, living and dining areas and adapted bathrooms and 5 bedrooms. The safe secluded garden has colourful purpose built play equipment including a spring free trampoline and wheelchair roundabout. This is a fun space for children to play.
