Cygnet Sedgley House and Cygnet Sedgley Lodge

Woodcross Street, Wolverhampton, West Midlands, WV14 9RT

Cygnet Sedgley House and Cygnet Sedgley Lodge offer a 34 bed high dependency inpatient rehabilitation service for men with complex needs. The service is designed to provide an environment that promotes mental health recovery by focusing on space, personal privacy and dignity.

Cygnet Sedgley House is a 20 bed service providing a full multi-disciplinary input including occupational therapy, psychology, psychiatry and vocational training. Person-centred plans are devised to match each individual’s needs. On a daily basis the service users at Cygnet Sedgley House are encouraged to use the therapy kitchen in order to cook meals. The therapy room is accessible for all service users to engage in internet sessions, arts and crafts, creative writing and other psycho-educational groups. Within the grounds there are areas for service users to landscape and garden and there are communal areas to promote social engagement.

Cygnet Sedgley House is predominantly for mental health assessment, with more one-toone support. Most rehabilitation activities take place on site. However, where appropriate, access to the local community is an essential step along the pathway to rehabilitation. At Sedgley, we encourage enrolment in courses at local colleges.

For both leisure pursuits and for social training such as shopping and using public transport, our hospital is ideally placed. The village of Sedgley has many amenities for our service users to enjoy, such as gyms, golfing ranges and swimming baths. Independence skills can be practised at the local shops. Regular public transport in the area provides both ‘travel training’ and allows our service users to visit the city of Wolverhampton, with all the facilities on offer there.

When the time is right, service users can move to Cygnet Sedgley Lodge, a 14 bed service that gives them increased independence, and a more outward-looking community-based programme. Finally, there is the option to step down to 12 Woodcross Street – a beautifully appointed semi-detached house next door – one step closer to full community reintegration.
