Andover Mind have recently been awarded contracts to run a new service in the Basingstoke and Winchester districts. The Older Persons Community Support Service (OPCIS), commissioned by Hampshire County Council, will be available county-wide and will be delivered by a number of providers across Hampshire.


OPCIS is a community based service, offering time-limited support (maximum 12 weeks) to people aged 55 and over who fall on the cusp of Adult Services eligibility criteria. The service will focus 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.
