Who we are

Cintre is made up of a diverse team who all share a passion for this area of work. 

"Supporting people in the community for 40 years"

We are a registered non-profit organisation, (charity number, 280339) who provide regulated support services to adults with a variety of conditions and behaviours that challenge.

Our services support people in residential and community settings. We provide support to people in Bristol, North Somerset, Gloucestershire and the surrounding areas. We have been established since 1980, originally providing residential services from just one location in Clifton. Now at present, we have expanded to having two additional locations in Clevedon and Kingswood, and provide floating community support.

We work with a variety of people such as professionals, governing bodies, parents and guardians. Our clients receive support in the Bristol area but often come from a range of regions across the UK.

As a charity we are managed by a group of trustees who volunteer their own time to oversee the work of the organisation. Find out more about Cintre’s Trustee team
