The Chiltern Centre based in Henley-on-Thames provides a short-break facility for 16–30-year-olds who have learning difficulties and/or complex medical needs. The charity offers a range of care services that empower young people to learn new skills, make friends, gain independence, and find joy whilst also promoting choice, positive self-image, and individual identity. At the same time, it provides practical support for their parents and families along with a vital break from the pressures of caring. The Chiltern Centre is highly regarded and very well supported by the local community for the vital lifeline it provides to the 28 local families who depend on it for a much-needed break. It was recently rated “good” by CQC. It is now seeking to strengthen its Board of Trustees with two new appointments as well finding a new Chair designate.
