The Jo Benson Day Centre
The Jo Benson Day Centre

Welcome to The Jo Benson Day Centre.

Our Day Centre supports adults aged 18 or over in the local Salisbury and surrounding community who have physical disabilities

"We are committed to meeting the needs of adults with physical disabilities in a safe and stimulating environment; promoting individuality, creativity and independence"


We believe that a Day Centre is much more than the sum of its parts. Meeting and chatting with friends, sharing activities, interacting with different kinds of people and supporting individuals to maintain their quality of life within their own community are the key drivers for most people.

We can offer:

  • An opportunity to socialise in a safe environment, encouraging conversation that includes a healthy dose of nostalgia. The social side of attending a Day Centre is an activity in itself.
  • A variety of activities to make sure there is something for everyone to enjoy that provides light-hearted, competitive fun. We aim to make your day as interactive as possible.
  • A support network; preventing the feeling of social isolation, enhancing mental wellbeing, supporting physical wellbeing and delivering important signposting.
  • A valuable period of respite for carers when they can take care of their own needs and take some time for themselves.

open day highlights

We held an Open Day on Tuesday 18th June 2024 to raise the profile of our Day Centre. It was a great opportunity to network with others working in the social care sector.

Salisbury MP John Glen posted on his social media page " Delighted to squeeze in a visit to the Jo Benson Centre during their open morning - meeting Trustees and members of this much cherished local institution set up by our former Mayor and Salisbury stateswoman Jo Benson during her mayoral year 1969/70...... Thank you for this invitation."

The Right Worshipful the Mayor of the City of Salisbury Cllr. Mr Sven Hocking (pictured here with Michael Bowyer MBE, Chairman of the Day Centre Trustees) spent time chatting to members about the Day Centre and his role within the local community.

We were also supported by the ladies from the Bemerton Townswomens Guild who very kindly agreed to man the refreshments table.
