About Us

Coping with learning disabilities and enduring mental health issues can be a challenge. For some it can feel insurmountable without the proper support.

Choosing to enter into a residential setting or seek out ongoing help is a difficult and deeply courageous decision, but with that support lasting positive change can be achieved.

Whether you are looking for yourself or a loved one, we are here to provide you with a guiding hand throughout the entire process. We are committed to supporting you and those who matter most to you.


Encompass (Dorset) is a specialist charity dedicated to providing person centred care and support to adults with a learning disability or enduring mental illness across Dorset.

We offer a mix of accommodation-based support services as well as care and support in your own home - all with an emphasis on person centred support.
