What we do

The Centre caters for three separate groups of clients:
  • Elderly people who might be isolated, lonely or whose carers might need a break;
  • Adults with mild or moderate learning disabilities, and;
  • Those with mental health difficulties.

Our mission

We aim to provide the best personal day care service with the utmost respect for our clients, employees, and those in the communities that we serve. Our primary goal is to maintain and enhance the quality of life and well-being of others, enhancing their potential to remain as independent as possible, for as long as possible.

Our vision is to become the most trusted day care provider in Buckinghamshire. We aim to excel at high-quality care delivery and support, backed up by professional management. We make important investments in our brand, in our operations and in our employees who deserve to be recognised for their unrivalled service and dedication.

How we do it

A non-profit organisation

The Princes Centre is a social enterprise established, funded and run by the community in Princes Risborough and the surrounding area. This means that we do not make any profit, but plough any surplus back into the improvement of the facilities we offer.
We are registered as a charitable company and are regulated by the Charity Commission and Companies House. Our constitution and accounts are filed with these bodies, as are the names of our Trustees.

Our organisation

The legal liability for the Princes Centre rests with the Trustees, who are responsible for ensuring that the company meets its declared object of relieving the needs of the elderly and people with physical difficulties, learning difficulties or mental health issues by the provision of day care facilities. The Trustees meet every month to review the company’s performance, as well as monitoring the budget, cash flow and progress on enhancing the facilities on offer, including the main buildings itself. An Annual General Meeting, at which we welcome attendance from the wider community, is held yearly.

As well as our Trustees, the Centre has 14 full time equivalent staff and over 20 volunteers. The staff team is highly qualified and highly motivated with over 150 years of experience between them as well as receiving accredited training.
