Forensic mental health: St Andrews
St Andrews supports people to prepare for living in the community again, after leaving forensic wards, rehabilitation, the Prison service and the Trevor Gibbens Unit.
St Andrews is a converted Victorian house providing nine self-contained one bedroom flats for people leaving secure care. The tenth flat is a staff office and sleeping area. Each flat is high-quality and non-clinical, creating a homely environment for tenants.
As part of our focus to develop high quality properties that truly meet the needs of people living there, St Andrews has been sympathetically redeveloped. We kept original features, whilst creating a modern yet homely flat.
We developed this property in 2016 in Maidstone for adults stepping down from forensic hospital such as the Trevor Gibbens Unit, rehabilitation or the prison service. They will have conditions from the Ministry of Justice, which may include no alcohol, no drugs and not returning to where the crime took place.
Tenants will move on to living in their own homes with less support after two years (or when they are ready).
