We wish all our; customers, staff, volunteers and the communities of Eastleigh and Fareham we serve, a very happy new year!
Looking back over 2019, we have done so much! Looking back to Shop Mobility collecting their service award from the mayor of Eastleigh, fast forward to moving to our temporary premises at 75 Leigh Road.
We have all worked hard to improve the lot of people in Fareham and Eastleigh through our community project support, volunteering, Eastleigh museum’s and Fareham’s shop outreach and Young Carers groups. Our transport appeal for funding for a new bus is almost at the point of being able to get one on the road and the day activity services are a fun and welcoming place to be.
Wishing all of you a very happy new year!
From all of us at One Community.
The festive season is nearly with us and our Day Service teams have been planning plenty of opportunities for fun!
All of these pictures were taken at our central day activity centre.
There was plenty of music, singing and dancing and a wonderful treat when the children from local school, The Crescent came along to sing.
We have got some beautiful cards made too!
If you would like to do something different with your time, you could volunteer to help in the day service. If you would like more details or to chat through how we’d support, encourage and equip you to do it. Ring Julia on 02380902457
If you know someone who has got some memory loss and would benefit from coming to do a range of activities, have a good hot meal and meet new friends, please get in touch.

We would love to hear from you?
This week we have been having some amazing new volunteers, from the British Army no less!
Working on a One Community filming project, to be shown later this year, the soldiers have been out at our various locations. ShopMobility, Eastleigh Museum and Day Activity Centres have all had visits.
Today our chief executive Jean Roberts-Jones has been interviewed.
Our special employee, LBE the canine partner dog, gave them a very warm welcome!
