About Solutions in Service

Living support for people with complex mental health needs

People with mental health issues often experience barriers to returning to their locality and into more appropriate forms of care. Others are sometimes placed in restrictive care, in residential and nursing homes that may have little emphasis on promotion of independent living skills.

For other people, the lack of access to locally supported services means remaining at home with their families and being reliant on the support of relatives in circumstances of unacknowledged distress.

Here at Solutions in Service Ltd, we offer you support in managing complex and challenging mental health needs and progress towards increased independence.

If you do genuinely want to have an active role in the progress of our service users to become fully independent and integrated into society. Please apply now!
