Some bed availability
The Huntercombe Centre Sherwood is a specialist care home for men with mental health problems or learning disability and a history of challenging behaviour. Residents generally come to Sherwood as an alternative to being admitted to a locked rehabilitation service.
Some have a history of criminal offending or have an addiction. Some residents stay with us on a guardianship order or a supervised community treatment order.
We provide a structured, supportive environment to help individuals rehabilitate back into the community. Our aim is to help them to live a safe, fulfilling life.

Respite care is available
We make a careful assessment of your needs before you join us at Sherwood. We will talk to you and, where possible, your family, and draw up a care plan together.
We have four one-bedroomed flats at Sherwood, where you can learn again how to live independently, safe in the knowledge that there is 24-hour support close by.
Rehabilitation works best when we draw upon an individual’s own strength and skills.
It’s likely that psychiatrists, psychologists and occupational therapists will all play a part in your treatment. If getting a job or extra education would help, we help with that too.
As you improve, and the risk you pose to others lessens, we gradually help you to reintegrate with the outside world.
I enjoy working here, the residents are at the heart of everything we do.
Communication is excellent and much appreciated by us.
It's difficult to find any fault, everything is done so professionally.
Independence and involvement
There are plenty of opportunities to bring your own personal touches to day to day life here at the Sherwood Centre. We encourage our residents to be as independent as possible. We like it when families are actively involved in a loved one’s care, helping us to set the right goals for each person each step of the way.
