Our history so far
Due to government cuts there needed to be changes and closures to parts of Southampton City Council Day Services.
It was identified during the day service consultation 2014-2015 that there was not enough alternative or appropriate provision available to support those leaving SCC services.
Many parents and carers asked us to set up a new provision that they knew would meet the needs of the people that they care for.
R Community was set up by Claire Pickering and Gill Lewis-Lee and opened in January 2016.
They have developed R community taking into consideration those wants, wishes and needs highlighted in the consultation.
Who are we?
Claire & Gill are qualified managers who have 20 years + experience in managing services. We are known to many of the service users, families and professionals and have a proven track record of offering quality community & day services.
We continue to be supported by families, the local community and businesses who have given or offered free time, resources or support to R Community.
