Richmond Fellowship’s Winston House is a 24 hour residential service and is registered with and regulated by the Care Quality Commission.
We work closely with multi-disciplinary teams to provide holistic support to adults with mental health conditions.
What we do
Our aim is to support people with their recovery using a holistic, co-produced, person centred approach to achieve improved levels of wellbeing, safety and independence. This is achieved through 1-2-1 work, group work and other therapeutic principles of the service.
We support people, typically leaving a psychiatric hospital, prison or secure hospital setting, through their recovery journey. The length of stay for people we support is in the region of 18 months to 3 years (although in some cases the complex profile and/or risk profile of people who are referred to the service means that their recovery journey can be longer).
The service, where relevant, work with external stakeholders as part of a multi-disciplinary approach to ensure that discharge conditions and legal conditions are monitored, supervised and met e.g. MAPPA arrangements, Section 37/41, Community Treatment Orders, Community Orders (probation) etc.
Who we help
Winston House provides recovery services for up to 25 adults with mental health conditions and complex needs.
People we support will often have forensic histories and profiles and in these cases will often be subject to restriction orders, community orders, MAPPA arrangements, Community Treatment Orders and/or Section 37/41 status.
The individual must be willing to reside in a communal setting and open to residing in a mixed gender, multi-cultural environment. The individual must engage in the process of recovery.
We tend to support people with diagnoses of psychosis/schizophrenia, personality disorder, dual diagnosis/addiction, depression, bipolar disorder.
Referrals are via a care co-ordinator and a named psychiatrist assigned to an individual.
Richmond Fellowship is part of Recovery Focus, a group of charities with the shared aim to Inspire Recovery Together.
