About the service
Coronavirus Statement (11th January 2021)
To best protect our members’ and staff safety, we have changed the way we provide support in order to adhere to the Government’s advice on social distancing and infection control.
In place of building-based and face-to-face support, our team has been supporting members over the phone and through online means since the start of the pandemic in March 2020.
The Lighthouse Recovery Centre building has been risk-assessed using Covid-safety guidance and we had begun to resume some face-to-face support for our members recently in a socially distanced manner. However, due to the recent tightening of restrictions again, at this present time we are only able to provide a remote service to our membership and no face-to-face sessions.
We hope to return to face to face groups and support session when government guidelines allow and we will then be offering a blended timetable of online and face-to-face groups with plans to increase the variety of treatment options as Covid-safety guidance changes.
We have kept in touch with our members to ensure their needs, safety and wellbeing are prioritised.
As and when there are any further changes to the support we provide, we will update this page.
In the meantime, if you have any questions about your support, or have a new enquiry about our service, please give us a call.
When will we do this?
We are open 7 days a week.
Am I eligible?
The service is here to support adults who live in Brighton and Hove who have a diagnosis of Personality Disorder.
How can I access the service?
We do not accept self-referral. Please speak to your mental health worker for further information or ask them to contact the Community Roots Central Access Point on 0808 196 1768.
