Male and female locked rehabiliation services

We want our patients to achieve something special and to be able to make their own choices and live as independently as they are able to.

To achieve this, our in-house multi-disciplinary team supports them with our Active CareTM Learning Disability model, which offers a Psychology, Speech and Language and OT-led approach alongside psychiatry and nursing.

Travel Safe programme: 'destination home'

At Cambian, we understand the concerns of the people in our care when it comes to road safety and using public transport. Travel safe is an OT initiative which allows patients to learn and practise travelling skills in traffic and travel like conditions so that they can learn travel safety and build the confidence that they need.

  • Personal safety
  • Route planning and fare budgeting skills
  • Confidence-building exercises
  • Reading travel information and road signage
  • Traffic light awareness
  • Pedestrian crossing
  • Bus passenger functions: on-board safety, ticket purchase and stop request
  • Road noise familiarisation
