Mental Health Support Care Service & Accommodation in Derby & Derbyshire

Aims and Objectives

As a provider of mental health support care and accommodation, the primary aims and objectives of our service are to better and improve the overall quality of life of our service users, whilst taking into account the wishes and expectations of each individual.

Based in Derby / Derbyshire, we provide support and accommodation to people with complex needs; these needs can vary from a long history of schizophrenia, to suffering from personality disorder – commonly following on from a period of drug or alcohol abuse. What we strive to do, is to provide both a supported housing service for those suffering with mental health issues, that delivers hugely on both fronts; quality of care and standard of accommodation. Over our 30 years in business, we have amassed the experience and tools to deliver a service that exceeds across the board; authentic care and sincere support, high quality accommodation and clear pathways to recovery and further independence are just a few of the areas that according to our service users, make us stand out compared with other care providers.
