Beach Road supports people to move out of low and medium secure forensic wards into high support accommodation.
Beach Road supports nine people with mental health needs who are moving on from long-stay secure hospitals.
Located in Hayling Island, Hampshire, Beach Road supports individuals who have forensic histories and can be on a community treatment order under MAPPA status or on a MHA section.
We deliver a recovery based model of support, working with each individual to realise their personal, psychological, social, vocational and clinical outcomes.
We will support people in their transition from low/medium secure forensic wards to their own accommodation requiring minimal support. This can take around two years (or until they are ready). Each individual will have a tenancy and be responsible for maintaining it.
We can provide ongoing support, once the individual has moved out, to
encourage a smooth transition. This can be for up to six months.
We take referrals from surrounding areas such as the Isle of Wight, Southampton, Portsmouth and other parts of Hampshire. Lisa Parle, Senior Operations Manager
