Rehability UK Dorset is based in the beautiful town of Christchurch. Christchurch is close to beaches, the New Forest and Bournemouth. It is famous for its priory, Quay and historic town. A most relaxing place, there are plenty of restaurants, coffee houses and a favourite of visitors to the region for many years. The sailing town of Lymington and its ferries to the Isle of Wight are only 20 minutes away.
Dorset features a lovely mix of coastal locations and rural countryside, beautiful scenery and the Jurassic Coast Path nestling on the southern coast of England.
We have proven expertise in supporting individuals who have a mental health diagnosis, individuals with profound, mild and moderate learning disabilities, and individuals on the Autistic Spectrum. Our Team in Dorset are skilled in providing outcome-focused person-centred support for individuals. We work closely with members of the local multi-disciplinary teams, to make sure that people have the best possible outcomes.
The Service Users we support are involved in a variety of activities and organisations, both locally and further afield. Some go to college, others to pubs/cafes, along with music venues and the many fine restaurants. We are all involved in our local village and we all recognise that our voice is both wanted and valuable.
A recent survey of the residents showed that they love their home, the area and the way that the staff individually support them. We offer person centred support that encourages independence and development along with an emphasis on each person living the life of their choosing. We are aware of the hopes, dreams and aspirations of the people who live at our services and we are passionate about supporting them as individuals in line with the needs and wishes.
One of our support workers, Nicola Dancer said, “I love being a support worker at Rehability UK, it’s rewarding knowing that you are making a difference.”
One of the residents said, “Best House ever” another said, “the staff are good and supportive” and another gave us a ‘thumbs up.’
We are determined together to provide a service with a smile on its face, a place to grow, achieve and make memories.
Meet The Manager
I love what I do for a living, I can honestly say that I still wake up every morning looking forward to going to work.
I started my care journey in Youth work with adolescents with complex forensic histories and making a difference to their lives gave me my passion and lit a flame for the work I do today.
Our industry is unique in that we can make a difference and see people change, we can help restore confidence, self-esteem and enable people to begin the journey of believing in themselves.
I enjoy being with people, building relationships and offering hope to the individuals we support, empowering them to achieve their hopes, dreams, and aspirations.
My values underpin all that I do, and I believe that modelling the behaviours to my teams is vital, so that they can witness these values in action: gentleness, courtesy, kindness, an ear to listen and having space for people and then watching the teams replicate them in their own daily support.
“I value each person as a precious human being, and I believe that any community without the people we support is incomplete”
John Begbour - Regional Operations Manager
Before joining adult social care, I worked in childcare for 14 years. I wanted a change of career and I wanted to make a difference to those who have a mental health illness.
I wanted to be able to support individuals, provide advice and to remove the stigma around mental health. I am passionate about seeing the people we support live a rewarding life without any challenges.
Every day is different. I enjoy working with service users who are all unique and have their own day to day lives.
I also enjoy football, going to the cinema, long walks along the beach and reading.
