The centre takes a planned goal setting approach and each individual is encouraged to discuss and agree on what their individual goals might be.
This could be as simple as getting out of the house and meeting people for an older isolated person, or more complex targets, such as learning the skills needed to leave home and live independently for a person with learning disabilities. The staff at the Princes Centre work proactively to help clients work towards their personal goals.

Our team take a personal interest in the wellbeing of its clients. Our team will listen carefully to your requirements and the needs of the individual to provide for them the most fulfilling and inspiring experience. The highly trained staff at the Centre are able to assess how much and what kind of support your loved ones might need and what kind of activities they would enjoy and benefit from. A plan is then developed to map out any risk assessment required and how to ensure the safety and well being of each person depending on their circumstances and physical capabilities.
The team will set goals to encourage each individual to discuss their needs and plan out their progress be it simply a matter of a person who has been isolated in their own homes making new friends. Or to achieve more complex objectives in helping a person with disabilities to develop the skills they need to maintain their independence and quality of life. We would always encourage potential clients to ‘come and see for themselves’ what the Princes Centre is all about and we are happy to arrange a ‘trial’ session so you can see exactly how the team can provide the support your loved one needs to feel safe, secure, happy and engaged.
The Princes Centre’s volunteers have been honoured with the Queen's Award for voluntary service, the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK.
The number of nominations and awards has increased year on year since the awards were introduced in 2002, showing that the voluntary sector is thriving and full of innovative ideas to make life better for those around them.
Kim Challinor Manager of the Princes Centre said “everyone involved in the centre, past & present are delighted that the centre has been recognised and I would like to pay tribute to all the hard work and commitment of all our volunteers but particularly the trustees”.
