Who we are

We are a not for profit organisation supporting local families in their everyday lives.  From our roots as a local service, we have established ourselves 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. 

We are registered with OFSTED and CQC  (provide the links to our pages on each of these sites).  Please read our Statement of Purpose for more detailed information. (link)
