Anchor Support Services Ltd was founded in 1989 by Marian Parkinson. In its infancy the company provided residential care for young adults with learning disabilities.
In May 2002 the company developed further by offering services within the Supporting People program.
In April 2006 Anchor Support Services registered as a Domiciliary Care provider.
The company is continuing to grow and develop in order to ensure we continue to provide outstanding, strategically relevant services to people living in Medway and Kent.
Anchor Support will provide support in an open and flexible way. Our services are based on principles of good practice and a belief that every service user is entitled to:
