Andover Mind has been awarded contracts to run a new service in the Basingstoke and Winchester districts. The Community Independence Service (CIS), commissioned by Hampshire County Council, is available county-wide and is delivered by a number of providers across Hampshire.


CIS is a community based service, offering time-limited support (maximum 12 weeks) to people aged 18 and over who fall on the cusp of Adult Services eligibility criteria. The service focuses on reablement and aims to maximise the long-term independence of the people who use it.


Referrals to the service are exclusively via the Community Independence Teams.
