Richmond House is a specialist learning disability rehabilitation unit which provides eight beds for females with a history of offending/challenging behaviour, who have learning disabilities and other conditions including autistic spectrum conditions (ASCs), personality disorders and mental illnesses.
This specialist unit is an important part of the step-down from secure hospital services and bridges the gap to improved skills and strengthen independence to enable safe continuation of care and transition into community placements.
We provide a holistic and individual approach to ensure that patients achieve, their full potential of safe living in the least restrictive environment.
The rehabilitation programme teaches patients transferable skills which they are supported and encouraged to practice and develop in our community setting. Individual programmes will vary dependent on patients’ needs, as they progress through their individual rehabilitation programme. Patients are also supported to participate in the on-site or community-based Real Work Opportunities (RWOs) Programme including voluntary placements.

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.
