Orchard Close - Under Consultation.

Orchard Close in Hayling Island is a respite facility in Hayling Island that is run by Hampshire County Council. In an attempt to meet the savings placed on them by central government, Hampshire County Council are currently consulting on a proposal to close the facility to save in the region of £600k. 

Andover and District Mencap currently have a number of members who use Orchard Close and are deeply upset and concerned that Orchard Close may close and their respite will be lost. We are currently meeting with our members to hear their stories and their concerns and will advocate on their behalf. 

A united voice is a loud voice and we urge you all to take a look at the consultation document and to complete with your views.

In addition to our own advocacy a campaign group has been set up to fight these proposals. Please click the link to connect with them and help SAVE ORCHARD CLOSE.

Support us to be the voice of those who continue to impacted on by Austerity and ongoing funding cuts.
