Welcome to The Coates Centre
Set within the beautiful grounds of Oakhaven Hospice, The Coates Centre welcomes anyone whose life has been impacted by illness from across the New Forest, Waterside and Totton communities.
This friendly and welcoming drop-in centre is there to provide information and support to help you cope with diagnosis of and the challenges of living with any long-term illness, and also to help pick up pieces if you are bereaved.
There's no need for a referral, just call in. You do not need to be known to Oakhaven Hospice.
Trained volunteers will welcome and guide you to information and offer support, along with a cuppa and slice of cake via the drop-in 'Hub'.
You can visit the Centre whenever you wish during opening hours.
You may want to join in with a support group, take part in one of the wellbeing activities, or simply call in for a chat; support is there for you.
The Coates Centre offers a free service and donations are always welcome.
Open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm
