At Springs Service, we provide a care pathway to support individuals to move on to supported living, a community placement, or return to their home. We have distinct living areas to allow each person to receive the level of support they need to prepare for the next step along their journey.

Our team are highly experienced, with all staff members trained in understanding autism, mental health conditions, and in creating a supportive environment for everyone. The multi-disciplinary team (MDT) work together with individuals to provide a holistic, person-centred, comprehensive assessment and care plan. The MDT ensures everyone’s needs are met in a way that helps achieve stability and discharge to the least restrictive setting.
