Treatment programmes aim to reduce the presenting mental health issues and offending behaviours in a Low Secure/ Rehabilitation setting where risk can be managed and reduced in order to allow patients to step down into less restrictive environments


Our three wards each have their own separate garden within a larger communal ground space which includes a tennis court and an allotment plot. There is a therapy centre on site which includes an IT suite, a practice kitchen, a sensory room and a large multi-purpose room which is used for a variety of activities.


Our programmes include a sex offender treatment programme and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, both aimed towards a learning disability population. EMDR therapy is utilised for patients with trauma related disorders. The education team works with individuals to develop basic numeracy and literacy and offers a wide range of learning opportunities including courses accredited by Agored Cymru.

  • An eight bed ward for females
