The humanitarian organisation decided to make the move to help people facing crises and those who are vulnerable or disadvantaged in the Solent area.

It is holding a series of demonstrations at its new offices in Commercial Road, Portsmouth, on June 26.

Demonstrations and exhibits will give invited visitors an insight into the work it does locally.

That includes services such as care in the home, medical equipment loan, first aid training, emergency response, event first aid, refugee services, international tracing and message services.

There will also be insights into its fundraising, youth and schools work and its international work,

Staff and volunteers will discuss how the organisation can provide services and reach people most in need.

Quentin Wallop, the 10th Earl of Portsmouth, will open the building and dedicate the Balfour training room.
