Our supported living services in Dorset are designed to maximise your potential and enable you to live as independently as possible.
We support people with learning disabilities, autism, brain injuries and other complex health needs to live a more independent lifestyle. We encourage you to take part in the activities that you enjoy – from social and leisure activities to educational and work opportunities.
Our specialist team will work with you to develop a care plan you’re happy with. You will be in control of your future whilst we support you with a range of activities, from looking after your home, personal care or getting out into the community.

David joined Voyage Care in 2012 and has worked in the care sector since 1987. Prior to his current role, he worked in the third sector where he held regional roles across London and the South East and a national senior management role.
I have worked in the social care sector for 18 years, nine of them specialising in the provision of services for people with a learning disability.
Prior to that my background has been very varied from working in the Benefits Agency headquarters, to presenting political asylum cases in court for the Home Office. Working for a housing association as their supported housing manager provided my route into a more direct care and support role.
I came to Voyage care in 2012 as part of the amalgamation of the Solor Care Group. Originally I oversaw a combination of small residential services and a few supported living services, however, since the recent change in shape of our supported living services to the Metro structure I now lead the South region with all things Metro, with 26 Supported living services across Hampshire and Dorset. In addition I also oversee 2 residential homes in Dorset, one of which is an autism Specialist and complex needs service working towards accreditation with the National Autistic society.
I am married with 2 grown up children and have the great pleasure of living on the edge of the New Forest in Hampshire where I enjoy being outdoors either running or walking the dog.
