Mental Health



A mental health care service providing high-quality support.

Whalley Road is a house situated in Accrington, Lancashire. We have nine en-suite bedrooms and a large garden. Our residents and their families are completely involved in developing their own care plans and in choosing the way they live their lives.

We work closely with each resident to help build their skillset and help them to be more independent in everyday life. At Whalley Road, we’re committed to supporting our residents to be independent, confident, and resilient. We have a specialist team that provides our residents the opportunity to grow and maintain a healthy level of good physical and mental wellbeing.

We understand that all the people we support have different needs, so alongside their key workers, families, and medical professionals we ensure the support we provide is bespoke in every detail.

Each person has a comprehensive support plan which covers every aspect of their care and support, taking in to account any concerns and issues that may arise and ensuring all needs and requirements are met enabling them to live the very best life possible. We are experienced in setting up bespoke, high quality packages of care and are committed to providing a person-centred, goal-focused approach which measures the outcomes set with each individual client.
