Lombard House is a specialist learning disability rehabilitation service for males with a history of offending behaviour and other conditions including autistic spectrum disorders (ASDs), personality disorders and mental illnesses.

The main house is able to accommodate seven patients and the Lombard House flats offer an extended care pathway for two patients.

Our approach

Our rehabilitation programme teaches patients independence and transferable skills. Patients are encouraged to develop their skills in a community setting and individual programmes will vary depending on patients' needs, as they progress through their individual rehabilitation programme.

Lombard House's specialist treatment programme focuses on supporting patients to work towards independent living.

Patients are supported to improve their independent daily living skills such as:

  • Cooking
  • Shopping
  • Laundry
  • Budgeting

Patients are also supported to participate in the on-site or community-based Real Work Opportunities (RWO) Programme including employment and voluntary placements.

Our treatment programmes span:

  • Assessment and motivational work
  • Offence-specific interventions
  • Relapse prevention
  • Personality disorder symptom reduction
  • Preparation for discharge

Focus on Safety

Our absolute priority is to make sure we operate safe and effective services 24/7 and that all staff understand what is required of them to make that happen. Click here to read more.

  • Rehabilitation kitchen
  • Communal living room
  • Games room with pool table and darts board
  • Conservatory
  • Horticultural activities and pond

Lombard House flat is situated within the grounds of Lombard House, offering spacious, open plan living areas and two bedrooms, which provides patients with a further step to independent living.

Referrals and admissions

All patients are detained under the Mental Health Act. The unit accepts males with a primary diagnosis of learning disability who may also have secondary diagnoses of conditions including:

  • Autistic Spectrum Conditions
  • Personality disorders

Patients are admitted from medium and low secure services or external community based residential/ supported living placements and are supported to work through their individual intensive treatment programme to move to community services.
