Cygnet Churchill is a 57 bed high dependency inpatient rehabilitation service for men in London. The service is dedicated to providing a high quality environment for promoting long-term recovery.

At Cygnet Churchill we have created exceptional spaces that aid in the overall rehabilitation of the people in our care. From the high specification of every en-suite bedroom to the spacious communal areas designed to meet the needs of people in our care.

Cygnet Churchill consists of three individual floors each featuring en-suite bedrooms, living areas and TV lounges. The shared therapy piazza includes activity rooms, music room, a barber shop, gym, internet café, therapy kitchens, a dining room and a therapy garden. The building has been designed with rehabilitation in mind, allowing a dynamic flow for service users with easy access to the multidisciplinary team (MDT).

In order for our service users to make a positive difference to their lives, re-integration into the wider community remains at the heart of the work we undertake with our service users. Equally, our service users also work in partnership with the community, giving something back by taking part in local projects and community groups. We choose the location of our services to provide every opportunity for our service users to learn and live as independently as possible.
