How we stand out

You are in the right hands

Olu Banjo, our Manager, is our Registered Responsible Individual and qualified
Mental Health Nurse with more than 16 years’ experience in all areas of mental health and learning difficulty including dual diagnosis and substance misuse.

The duration of rehabilitation Programme range from six months to two years, working in collaboration with local community based services i.e. (Job Centres, Colleges) and Health Care Professionals. Care plans will contain long and short-term goals and will be reviewed on a monthly basis to assess the challenging needs of the service user. At the end of every six months a review will take place to identify whether continued support of rehabilitation or more independent accommodation is required.

To ensure that the assessment is completed whilst gaining all of the necessary information, potential service users will be assessed by the Service Coordinator and the responsible individual who will then develop care plans from all information gathered during the assessment, referral and psychiatric reports.

Many people who suffer with mental illnesses are subject to social isolation and it is our aim to ensure that our service users are provided with the opportunities to take control over their own lives to overcome the feelings of worthlessness and build on their confidence to become a valued member of the community.
