About Touchbase Care

Enabling People, Creating Choice

We want to improve the quality of life for our members by providing a range of support, advice and training opportunities to develop abilities, learn new skills, encourage social inclusion and enable people to live independently.

Many Touchbase members who use our services have said that their wellbeing has improved to such a degree thereby resulting in fewer visits to their G.P. All activities are supported by professional staff and volunteers trained in specialist care.

What We Do
About Touchbase Care  Enabling People, Creating Choice

Our Key Aims

  • To bring people together, who may suffer from isolation, into a supportive setting
  • To encourage and support our members with achieving their personal goals.
  • To use arts and creativity in a therapeutic setting
  • To break down social barriers, accessing events and places of interest in the wider community
  • To increase opportunities for employment, work experience and volunteering.
  • To raise disability awareness and promote disabled people’s rights

Our Social Impact

Touchbase is committed to sustainable development whilst maximizing wellbeing through breaking down barriers and promoting inclusion.

We encourage our members to access health walks and cycling sessions at places of natural beauty and local interest to get people out in our local community, encouraging fresh air and exercise and an appreciation of the local natural environment. We enable people to build in confidence so that they are able to do this independently. We also support people with travel training using public transport to aid their independence.

We grow our own salads and vegetables, teaching how to garden in a small space and use this to supply our kitchen where a healthily lunch is cooked daily. We are signed up to the Fare Share Kent Scheme to minimise food waste and disseminate this amongst our members:Fareshare Centres Kent

We are always finding creative ways of upcycling and reusing materials. For example ARRCCLark, our alternative catwalk event, consisted primarily of upcycled clothes made at the centre. We also support employment and job retention, skills building and address economic impact.

This all has a positive knock-on effect as members will are able to share their knowledge as well as develop a sense of pride and belonging to a diverse local community.
