We operate a social enterprise Community Café alongside our soft play facilities. Not only do we produce barista-style coffee, hot food and party catering, we offer training and mentoring for local people for employability skills. The income generated from this enterprise is invested into our children and youth support services.


Makekits is a social enterprise project. Every kit sold directly supports the work of the Carroll Centre, a community organisation and registered charity. Your purchase supports young people and their families in the heart of Hampshire.

Badger’s Patch

In partnership with Winchester City Council, the Carroll Centre was awarded a government Pocket Park grant to create a children’s nature area in Stanmore to help children connect with nature and enjoy woodland walks, open-air story-telling and bush craft. The project opened in May 2020 in an previously unwelcoming patch of wooded area. It is now a beautiful walk filled with wooden sculptures, bug houses, hedgehog house and nests.

Meeting & Work Spaces

We have a variety of spaces available to rent, ongoing and one-offs. This includes meeting rooms, counselling rooms, hot desks and training rooms. These can be set up to suit your delivery requirements.

We can also offer catering for your sessions and events, including hot beverages, snacks or buffets.
