Westbridge Mental Health Resettlement Service is a unique project, delivered in partnership with Cumbria, Northumberland and Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust. It provides residential and clinical support for up to 12 adults who have been discharged from secure or semi-secure mental health hospitals, or prisons, with the aim of helping them to reintegrate back into the community.

NHS staff are based on-site and they provide clinical help and assistance to the residents. The Support Workers are key to helping residents learn the skills to help them live independently – from cooking and cleaning to paying bills, navigating the benefits system, and even getting them back into work when the time is right.

Ultimately the aim of a Support Worker at Westbridge is to provide personalised, bespoke guidance and support to our residents, as they progress and prepare to move on into their own accommodation.
