We provide an inpatient and day-patient service for young people aged 13 to 25 years. The majority of our young people stay with us on an inpatient basis, on average for around three to four months. To accommodate our different age groups, our bedrooms are arranged over two floors: one floor for our 13-17 age group, the other floor for the 18-25 age group. Each floor has its own lounge. Located on the ground floor is our on-site school offering education from key stage 3 through to GCSE and A Levels.

Inpatient service

Inpatient service

During a short stay we aim to restore our young people to a healthy weight and help them achieve a good relationship with food. We offer a range of therapeutic groups and workshops aimed at helping our young people to think about what is happening to them, to feel comfortable expressing their feelings and to make lasting changes to their behaviours. Crucially, we put everything in place to help them continue to remain healthy and happy after they've left us. We work very closely with our families and carers to give our young people the best chance of ongoing recovery when they go home.

Day-patient service

Day-patient service

  • Alongside our inpatient service we also provide a day-patient service. Young people arrive at about 8.00am in the morning and go home after the evening meal. The day is spent in individual and group therapy sessions, working on recovery plans and activities and being supported through meal times.
  • This service is most suitable for young people who are already working hard on their recovery from their eating disorder, who need intensive support, but not to the level that inpatient treatment offers. Young people joining our day-patient service are assessed prior to joining the service to make sure they are physically stable enough to benefit from the service. Some young people join the day patient service as a step down from inpatient treatment to help with their transition to community care.
