About the service
Coronavirus Statement (5th November 2020)
To best protect member and staff safety, in March, we changed the way support was provided by the service so we could adhere to the Government’s advice on social distancing and infection control.
In place of building-based and face-to-face support, over the past few months, our team has been supporting members over the phone and through online means.
Alongside our commissioner, we have been planning how we could resume some level of face-to-face support for our members. Using Covid-safety guidance, we have risk-assessed the building space we have at the Lighthouse Recovery Centre to explore how it can be used in a socially-distanced safe way. We are pleased to be able to say that some of the staff team are now able to work from the Centre again.
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.
