Founded in 1989 by Marian Parkinson, Anchor Support continues to grow and develop, to ensure we continue to provide outstanding, and strategically relevant services to people living in Medway, Kent.

Our mission

At Anchor, we provide support in an open and flexible manner. Our services are based on principles of good practice and our belief that every service user is entitled to their own:















Independence has an inherent risk element which we will always strive to minimise through co-operation and understanding, whilst working within the Mental Capacity Act 2005. And will always respect an individual’s right to make decisions for themselves.  

Our aim

We aim to provide industry leading, innovative support services to people with learning disabilities and learning difficulties. We plan to consolidate and advance our core business activities through strategic planning and development, with emphasis being placed on robust business practices and modern, forward-thinking services.

Our commitment to making a difference that is highly valued by our stakeholders, sits at the core of our business.

Equal opportunities

We understand that certain groups within society experience discrimination both directly and indirectly. We recognise that our company provide services to a diverse society, including people and communities with a variety of interests, needs and abilities.

Our team is committed to opposing all forms of discrimination, and we will take active steps to implement policies and procedures which counter discrimination.

Our policy applies to all matters relating to employment and service delivery, as it affects individuals and groups regardless of their position within the organisation.
