We provide a person-centred approach in a centre of excellence, providing a rehabilitative environment to facilitate the safe and effective management of service users with behaviours which may challenge. The Springs Unit works closely with the other ASD services on site which can form part of a step-down pathway for the men in our care.

The team at Cygnet Hospital Harrow are highly experienced in supporting people with ASD and all members of staff are trained in understanding ASD and in understanding and creating a supportive environment for all service users.

The multi-disciplinary team (MDT) work together with individuals to provide a holistic, person centered, comprehensive assessment and care plan. The MDT ensures people’s needs are met in a way that helps achieve stability and discharge to the least restrictive setting.
