Riverbank, Hull, offers rehabilitation and support for people with severe and long term mental health problems. Read how schizophrenic Kevin flourished at Riverbank after unsuccessful stays at other secure units.
The service is operated in partnership with Hull City Council, Hull Teaching PCT and Inclusion Housing and can accommodate up to 36 people in three different levels of accommodation.
Riverbank provides care for people at different stages of their recovery journey and we operate an approach that begins with intensive rehabilitation with people living in one of our high support en suite rooms. As residents meet their goals, they have the opportunity to move into a medium intensity supported living apartment within the same complex as they continue with their treatment plans.
Where possible, the final step of the journey sees residents move to one of our independent living flats at nearby Kingfisher Rise close enough to still draw upon the support and encouragement of our team if needed.
Throughout the entire journey, the purpose-built Riverbank building operates as a central care hub, with a bistro style dining area, lounge, offices and rooms for meetings and therapy sessions.
