SIG Penrose has announced a partnership with the East London Foundation Trust (ELFT) to deliver an exciting new pilot project that will support timely and effective discharge from Bedfordshire’s mental health wards.
The project launched on 8th April 2021 and will run for 15 weeks.
SIG Penrose is working in partnership with the ELFT to deliver a short term pilot project, The Coppice, supporting the timely and effective discharge from Bedfordshire’s mental health wards, for those who are clinically ready to be discharged, but are facing delays in returning to their accommodation/homes. The service is a seven-bed unit in Bromham which has previously been used as a learning disability residential unit.
SIG Penrose’s head of services and specialist lead Emmeline Irvine said: “We are pleased to be working in partnership with ELFT in the provision of this vitally important service. SIG Penrose is in the unique position to be able to provide staffing as well as therapeutic engagement for the service users.”
