Cygnet Manor

Central Drive, Shirebrook, Nottinghamshire, NG20 8BA

Cygnet Manor is a 20 bed high dependency complex care service for men with learning disabilities and associated complex needs.

When individuals come to our care they can often be mentally and emotionally fragile, due to the transition and change. We believe that creating a calm and inviting environment we can enhance a person’s progress and self-esteem to help them on their care pathway.


All bedrooms are en-suite and furnished to a high standard. The people in our care are encouraged to personalise their bedroom to their own taste.

Our communal living spaces are fresh, spacious and encourage social interaction. In addition, our staff to individual ratio is an important element of our mental health service. A number of clinical studies have demonstrated the positive impact that high staff ratios have on individual development and standard of care, our standard ratio is one staff member for every two people in our care.

Our rehabilitation mental health hospitals specialise in enabling adults with learning disabilities and complex needs to develop the necessary skills to move toward greater independence with increased social functioning and inclusion through a personalised care pathway.
