Kentish Road Respite Centre is a Southampton City Council run weekend respite service for adults with learning disabilities, with accommodation for up to four people.

Staff are fully trained to meet the needs of the people using the service and we have the facilities to provide respite for clients with more complex support care needs.

The service is based on the ground floor of the building with four fully furnished bedrooms. There is a large communal lounge and a sensory room within the building, together with a large garden.

The respite centre provides a range of activities catering for each individual’s needs, including:

  • Cinema
  • Day trips to various locations in the south
  • Arts and crafts and much more
