  • Location Information
  • Within Cygnet Cedars is a two bed step-down service, allowing for further community integration and focus on daily living skills. Each individual in our care begins a personalised care pathway that helps them develop necessary skills to leave our rehabilitation services and move towards a less restrictive setting.

    We want the men in our care to make their own choices and live as independently as they are able to. To achieve this, our in-house MDT supports them with our myPath learning disability model, which offers a psychology, speech and language and occupational therapy led approach alongside psychiatry and nursing.

    Cygnet Cedars has been rated as “Outstanding” by the CQC.
