Fir Trees is a Treatment & Recovery Centre for people with enduring mental health problems who have been assessed as having the potential to improve their level of functioning and independence.
It is a mixed sex facility for up to 14 people between the ages of 18 to 60 and is registered to take individuals detained under sections 3, 37 and 41 of the Mental Health Act 1983.
At Fir Trees we aim to understand our temporary place in supporting people on, or beginning a recovery journey. We aim to offer sharing of experiences, advice and support that is mutual, positive and nourishing; in order to ensure people reach a position of safety and stability in their lives. From this turning point we offer a pathway of learning, re-learning and growth to support people to reclaim their futures.
We are able to offer consistent, personalised packages of support that are holistic and are coherently rooted in a psycho-social approach to enable recovery. We aspire that people will grow beyond a need for support directly from our recovery centres; and we aim to support people in their growth as long as they feel that they need us. Linking in with our organisations vision: A world where people control their lives.
Staff work in partnership with individuals and all relevant agencies to ensure appropriate packages of community care are in place when someone is ready for discharge.
Fir Trees is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and is regularly internally monitored. The registered manager is supported by quality partners within Alternative Futures Group to maintain and strive to improve quality and standards.
