The Chaseley Trust was established in 1946 by Dr Luttwig Guttman to care for Military personnel returning from the Second World War with spinal injuries. Dr Guttman, who initiated the Stoke Mandeville Games, which later became the Paralympic Games, believed that injured veterans should not be defined by their disabilities and deserved to live a full and active life. We now provide our facilities and services to all adults over the age of 18 who have significant disabilities regardless of their military background.

Chaseley, a registered charity, is a 55 bed home that specialises in long and short-term nursing for adults with complex disabilities, such as Acquired and Traumatic Brain Injury, loss of limbs, spinal cord injury, stroke and degenerative neurological conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone and Parkinson's.

Chaseley's multi-disciplinary approach to care and rehabilitation includes physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and recreational activities. This ensures that their person-centred approach is focused on individuals regaining as much independence as possible, so that their psychological well-being and emotional balance are maintained.

In addition to this, on-site facilities include a wheelchair accessible gym that is specifically designed for people who are disabled and is also open to non-residents who are living in the community.
