Cygnet Lodge Brighouse

60 Rastrick Common, Brighouse, West Yorkshire, HD6 3EL

Cygnet Lodge Brighouse is a high dependency inpatient rehabilitation service for men. The emphasis within the service is on preparing people for discharge, whilst providing a high level of support and uses a recovery focused model.

As part of the service, we also provide a three-bed apartment, Rastrick View. This helps support service users to prepare effectively for discharge by further encouraging independence, while maintaining the inputs of the service and staff support where needed. It also provides the chance to evaluate what support a person may need on leaving the service, which can help prevent readmissions and support positive discharges.

Cygnet Lodge Brighouse can support up to 24 men in a relaxed, calm and friendly environment. The focus is on helping individuals increase their independence wherever possible by accessing the community meaningfully; such as through work and education, as well as social and leisure facilities.
