Cygnet Lodge Salford opening in December 2019

Cygnet Lodge Salford in Manchester, our new 25 bed high dependency inpatient rehabilitation service for women, is opening in December 2019 and referrals are now being accepted.

The service will support individuals with a primary diagnosis of mental illness, but they may also have a complex secondary diagnosis, including a personality disorder.

Women may come to Cygnet Lodge Salford following multiple placement breakdowns, failed treatment programmes or they may be stepping down from secure settings. The service has been designed with wellness in mind, providing a safe and comfortable environment that promotes efficient rehabilitation and recovery. Our aim is to understand, stabilise and break the traumatic cycles of relapse that can impact individual’s lives.

Our psychology and occupational therapy led interventions will effectively tackle the challenges of mental health and, alongside our clinical interventions, will help women enhance their personal skills to rebuild their lives. Our care embraces a balanced approach to risk management and therapeutic optimism.

When the time is right, access to the local community is an essential step along the pathway to independence, for both leisure pursuits and for social training such as shopping and using public transport.

Cygnet Lodge Salford is situated on a quiet residential street in Salford within walking distance to local shops and amenities including restaurants, libraries, colleges and various places of worship. Just a 20 minute drive from the service is the popular Trafford Centre which is a large indoor shopping centre and leisure complex in Greater Manchester.

In addition to the 20 en-suite bedrooms, the service also features a number of bespoke apartments, allowing women to reside together in a small group or independently.
