Reach your Personal Potential

The focus of all the rehabilitation treatment that takes place at the Integrated Rehabilitation Centre is about reaching potential. The outcomes of this will vary from person to person: it might be helping a disabled patient to get out of a chair unaided; or enabling a breathless patient to walk down the road; or even supporting an elite athlete getting to the Olympics.

Our team are dedicated to treating people as individuals and not for their conditions. We believe in collaborative multidisciplinary solutions and making sure no-one falls through the cracks to be left fending for themselves.

Dorset LEP

The new multi-million-pound state of the art facilities were enabled by a £2.7 million ‘Getting Building Fund’ grant funding allocation by Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), with AECC University College providing additional funding towards the cost of the facilities and suite of courses and services that will be available.

Dorset LEP secured £11.8 million of the government’s Getting Building Fund in 2020, set up in response to the economic challenges of the pandemic. The new facility at AECC University College is one of nine projects supported by Dorset LEP through this fund.
