For anyone in the New Forest, Waterside and Totton communities whose lives have been impacted by illness, The Coates Centre offers a safe haven to meet and share with others who understand what you are going through; where you can find support to help you cope with everyday challenges.
There’s no need for a referral or be known to Oakhaven, you can drop in anytime whether you’ve been recently diagnosed or you are living with a long term condition, perhaps you are a carer, or you are bereaved, then The Coates Centre can provide information and support.
Trained volunteers will welcome and guide you to information, offering support along with a cuppa and slice of cake via the drop-in ‘Hub’ at the Centre. You can visit whenever you wish during opening hours – call in for a drink and chat, you may want to join in with a support group or if you feel you can take part in one of the wellbeing activities, or just simply sit and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.
Please note our Christmas Opening Hours - don't be alone join us for a cuppa and there's bound to be a jigsaw out on the table :-)
