Our comprehensive integrated services offer complete care pathways allowing service users to transfer effortlessly between the most appropriate care, meeting individual needs enabling recovery and re-engagement within the community and maximising life opportunities.

Our multi-disciplinary teams provide care for up to 110 male and female service users, working collaboratively with their commissioners, across our 8 wards and our nearby community house. Our focus is on the delivery of excellent care, empowering service users to progress towards the least restrictive setting and towards independence.  Our vision is to place our Service Users at the heart of our service provision, working closely with them and their carers to support their recovery and rehabilitation.
