The service goes live on 1st April 2021 and has been awarded by NHS England and NHS Improvement England.

The service will be delivered in partnership with CRG, which delivers the wider healthcare service at the prison.

The contract expands The Forward Trust’s existing delivery of primary mental health (IAPT), clinical substance misuse and employment services at Chelmsford. As such, it enables The Forward Trust to provide integrated, wrap-around support for clients with related mental health, substance misuse and employment needs, increasing the organisation’s ability to help more people achieve productive and fulfilling lives – with improved mental and physical health – free from crime, drugs and alcohol.
