Feeling safe and secure in your own home is something that we often take for granted – it’s one of the most important aspects of maintaining not only our physical, but mental health.
That’s why our work with customers who are living with a mental health condition is so important. We work alongside customers to put together a long-term support plan which provides them with the safety and security of their own home and allows them to retain their independence.
Our main aim is to support customers throughout their recovery and enable them to reach their potential.
Take a look at our range of mental health focused services below where you’ll find information on what they do, who they are for and how you can reach them.
