Shelley Ward – Men’s Low Secure

Shelley Ward is our 16 bed male low secure service, providing recovery based treatment for men whose mental health needs result in continuing and ongoing disturbed or challenging behaviour and who may have a dual diagnosis.

Many of our service users have a significant forensic history and we work closely with external agencies including the Ministry of Justice and MAPPA. Individual sex offending treatment is offered on Shelley Ward and RSVP (the Risk of Sexual Violence Protocol) is used on the ward to evaluate risk.

The aim of our secure services is to support individuals to transition towards independent living, or the least restrictive environment. The teams on our secure wards monitor, manage and reduce risk, whilst balancing therapy and security and preparing service users to lead full and independent lives. Care planning is in alignment with My Shared Pathway and is designed to promote recovery.

Shelley Ward benefits from our regional network of step-down mental health rehabilitation and specialist services, enabling local care pathways for service users to remain close to home and in the least restrictive environment.

The hospital is conveniently located just off the M62, in a quiet suburb of Bradford, with strong links to the local community.
