Unity Health and Care
The Unity Health and Care Team deliver support services into all communities in the Test Valley, aiming to build community resilience and support those members of our communities who are vulnerable for whatever reason.
We pride ourselves in the quality of service we deliver which is a testament to the staff team who are highly experienced in the care and support sector.
They draw on their knowledge base of all the other agencies, charities and community groups across the area to link people who are isolated or who wish to widen their social network into groups and activities, and where that is not possible or appropriate we look to fill the gap with the services that we deliver.
This has become more important than ever during the pandemic, and we have worked hard to support our communities in all the ways we can.
In 2020 we achieved…
Referrals from a variety of agencies and individuals
People helped with social isolation
People helped with improving their living environment

Information and Advice Line
Set up to respond to the immediate needs of the community created by the first Covid lockdown, this free service is still responding to requests from members of the community who need help in these difficult times. Working with our wonderful volunteer teams and community groups we have delivered vital supplies of medicines and shopping through the last year, particularly those who were shielding or Covid positive and needing to isolate. Although the national guidelines are changing, we are still here to help people find solutions to some of the problems caused by Covid. To contact the Information and Advice Line please call 0330 4004 116 or email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Home Support Service
This service delivers home support to those people who need a little bit of assistance at home to enable them to maintain their independence. Our team will help with many tasks that can sometimes become too much, for example paperwork and form filling, benefit claims and health issues as well as shopping assistance, dealing with utility companies or other large organisations and also including bereavement issues and support. This support is available for either the short or long term and for more information regarding this chargeable service please contact Unity on 0330 4004 116 or email email@example.com.
Hoarding & Decluttering Service
Unity provides a specialist chargeable service for people who, for whatever reason, need help in decluttering their home. We work closely with individuals to bring about an effective solution to improve health and wellbeing. We work on a one to one basis with people who approach us directly and we also take commissions from statutory agencies who are looking to resolve a problem for clients who need that little bit of extra support. For more information please contact Unity Hoarding and Decluttering Service on 01264 523490 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
